and I didn’t feel very well waking up that morning. I went downstairs for breakfast hoping my wife would be pleasant and say, “Happy birthday!” with a possible present for me.
No such luck. Barely a good morning, let alone a “Happy birthday”.
I figured…well, that’s marriage for you. Maybe the kids will remember. My kids ate breakfast and didn’t say a word.
Needless to say, I left for the office feeling pretty low and despondent.
As I walked into my office, my secretary Martha said, “Good morning boss! Happy birthday!”.
