I am a mean wife


I did not get my husband a birthday present.

I did not buy my husband a birthday cake.

I did not throw my husband a birthday party.

I did not sing, "Happy Birthday" to my husband.

So what did I do for my husband on his birthday?

I logged into his e-mail account and sent e-mails to his family, friends, and co-workers saying, "Guess what!  It's my birthday!" and "Aren't you going to call and wish me a happy birthday?"


His friends were all very accommodating.

When I told my husband about my second pregnancy, I did it through his co-workers. I called them and asked for them to shower him with congratulations until he finally "got" it. (He knew I was going in for a blood test, so I didn't think it would take long to figure out.)

Being men, they congratulated him on being such a great "swimmer", and it took six hours and him nearly punching a guy out before they broke down and gave him the news.

I never thought about doing it for a birthday, though, and his IS coming up in April... :)

You are so funny.

My husband was on a different continent from us for his birthday, but I still baked him a birthday cake, and my girls and I ate it in his honor.

Thank you for the laugh. I have loved your blog and look forward to each post. You are not a mean wife, it has to beat the present I gave my husband last year...strep throat. Thank you for your clever and witty sense of humor!
