Personally, I believe in a certain amount of emergency preparation. Seat belts, toothbrushes, that sort of thing. Not being the best at remembering important dates myself, I also don't get too bent if say, our anniversary takes my man off guard. A couple of years ago we were so busy we BOTH forgot and only realized when my more-organized-than-thou sister in law called to wish us a happy anniversary.
However, I also know that I, as a chick who loves Transformers for their ass-kicking (and not kissing) am a rare bird indeed. Most of my kind are just waiting for one special day or the next.
I also suffer from the horrendous foot-in-mouth-all-the-way-hip disease.
Is this familiar to anyone else?
Having a back-up plan...or in this case backup bling in case of emergency seems like common sense to me. Right guys? If you are prone to forgetting important days, or prone to saying just the wrong thing at that perfect moment when it is most likely to get you sliced up like sushi, then perhaps a bit of pre-planning will make your life smoother.
So, speaking as a female who feels your pain boys, I thought I'd spare you some. Buy early. It does not need to be expensive. it needs to be pretty and it needs to be there when you need it. Then you can be awesome-thoughtful-guy instead of unappreciative-loser-guy.
Boys stop reading here.
Girls...we know this will only work to a degree. However, mostly they mean well so we can at least pretend to be surprised, especially if it means more sparkly-things now and then!
Let me know what you think! It is wise or just annoying?
Inquiring minds want to know.
