I swear, I just can't make things up that are this funny.
Riding home from church yesterday, Nathaniel chimes in with this beauty:
"You know, I'm thinking I need a list of holidays written down where I'll be expected to get my wife presents."
Me: "Really? What's on your list?"
N: "Well, let's see. There's her birthday, our anniversary, Valentine's Day. . . ."
Yurii, highly amused, gets in on the act:
"You'd better NOT forget Valentine's day, buddy!"
N: "Easter. . . . "
Me: "No, you're good on Easter. No presents there."
N: "Oh, that's good. Then there's Mother's Day, and Christmas. . . . "
Me: "Don't forget the 'Just Because' days. And the 'I'm sorry you've had a bad week' days. . . "
Y: "I have clearly failed to make a list."
N: "This is getting complicated!"
Y: "Tell me about it, son."
The conversation went on and on - but you get the picture.
