I Forgot

"Did you remember to make the reservations for our anniversary dinner tomorrow night?" Jenny asked Derek.

"Oops, I forgot," he replied nonchalantly, as he plunked down in front of the television while she stayed busy in the kitchen.

The next evening Derek arrived home over an hour late and found Jenny standing there in her nicest dress with tears streaming down her face. "How could you be late tonight of all nights?" she wailed.

 "Oh Lord, I was so busy at work that I totally forgot about our anniversary," Derik mumbled, staring down at his feet.  "Maybe this will make up for it though," he said, retrieving tickets for a Mediterranean Cruise from his jacket and handing them to her with a sly smile.

  2. Bill is good. He knows what makes me happy and is sweet, always. A cruise wouldn' would have to be a fishing trip Up North. Just sayin'!

  3. Im with Christine! He would be on the floor before I forgave him.

  4. Funny, but my Sweetie and i don't bother much with birthdays and anniversaries, except kid birthdays.

  5. If he had time to do the cruise bookings a simple phone to book dinner should have been easy. Even I wasn't that bad! I am not sure I like his sly smile either unless dinner is booked as well. A lot of food for thought here.
