Stay Out of the Dog House on Your Anniversary
Tomorrow is our twenty eight wedding anniversary, the year of the orchard.
I remember the first couple years of being married, just could never get this gift thing down just right.
As an example, here is a list of gifts that I actually bought for my wife that got me into the dog house.
First Christmas – One of the gift’s I bought Margie our first Christmas was a pink fluffy robe. I thought it was kind of cool looking and it would keep her warm those nights I wasn’t at home working the graveyard shift as a cop. WRONG, was thrown into the dog house…
Second Christmas – Well I was a cop, you want to make sure that your wife is safe at home while you’re working, so I bought her a shinny chrome .38 revolver. You guessed it, dog house…
Then it was birthdays one year I bought her a sewing machine, dog house. Think I’d learn the next time around? Hell no, I buy a damn vacuum cleaner!
Well finally after all these years I finally figured it all out (I hope) and I bought her a gift card from her FAVORITE STORE, Home Depot.
HOLLY CRAP! HEY WHERE IS THIS PLACE?????
I’m back in the Dog House…..
Love you Margie, it’s been a great 28 years, can you please bring me back in now 😉
