Don’t Forget Those “Important” Dates
Everyone likes to feel special. Fortunately, in our society, we have certain days that are set aside for just that purpose; Mother’s Day, Birthdays, and Anniversaries all exist just to make the person being honored feel special (and to sell Birthday Cards as well). But, how special is that special person going to feel if they are forgotten? Instead of feeling special, they are going to feel like they are unimportant, and even worse, they’ll feel unloved.
Fortunately for you and me, modern technology has been applied to the age old problem of men forgetting their anniversaries and wives birthdays. That’s right, where your memory fails; an electronic memory can help you out. Just program those special days into your cell phone, digital watch, facebook account, and whatever PIM you use on your computer. That way, you won’t be guilty of forgetting again.
If you’re smart, you’ll program those days in with a little bit of anticipation, so you have a day or two to go out and buy her a present. Make sure it’s a romantic one.
Day 17 – Okay, we’ve got a little bit of a timing problem on this one, because I don’t know when your anniversary or your wife’s birthday is. So, you may not be able to complete today’s romantic act today. Nevertheless, this is a biggie on the importance scale.
Yeah, you got it; make sure you buy your wife a NICE gift on her birthday, and again on her anniversary. How do I define a nice gift? Simple, it needs to be something frivolous (not something useful), that she would love to have, but would never buy herself. Jewelry fits the bill for this one. So do things that she might use in a hobby. Use your imagination, she’s your wife; you should know by now what she likes.
Oh, and buying flowers for your wife on her birthday is a confession that either you couldn’t come up with an idea, or you forgot and had to run out at the last minute to get something. While that’s better than nothing, it’s not the best that you can do. Let’s go for the best!
