Chris G. Williams Beware: I mix tech and personal interests here.

Sometimes I think I was put on this earth to serve as an inspiration to others... the rest of the time I realize I'm more of a warning. Stay tuned as I die for your sins this weekend.

* ring ring *

her: Do you know what Sunday is?
me: Yes
her: What?
me: our anniversary

Allow me to pause here for a moment and say how much I truly HATE that game. If I tell you I know what something is, don't demand proof. It never ends well. Either I'm lying and you've busted me and now you're mad -or- I'm not lying, and now I'm annoyed at being challenged over it.  Either way it ends in a fight that could have been avoided.

her: you know you scheduled a super bowl party on our anniversary, right?
me: I didn't schedule the super bowl.
her: ...long pause...
me: ...waiting...
her:  well I just wanted to make sure you knew.

Again, this seldom goes over well. If I had something planned for another night, you've just made a big deal out of nothing. If I hadn't scheduled something else, then you're just adding insult to injury.

me: I was planning on us doing something Saturday.

ok, not entirely true, but I'm good for it. Saturday is 4 days away. I can  figure something out.

her: I haven't made arrangements for the kids.
me: ...pause... ok
her: ok
me: do you want me to cancel the party?
her: no... don't do that.

As Admiral Ackbar would say...  "It's A Trap!!"  At this point, I'm screwed... If I cancel the party, she feels guilty and I'm going to suffer. If I don't cancel the party, well... she'll have a good time but probably won't admit it.

me: ok so what do you want me to do?
her: I have to go.  I'm trying to find this place...
me: uhh... ok.

The rest of the conversation really isn't even worth typing (nothing interesting enough to put in here, at least.)

update:  enough of you have left comments or emailed me directly with concerns for my well being and mental health that I figured I would let you all know that there have been no dismemberments or massive blowups. There is peace in the kingdom once again, although I am glad you all enjoyed the SuperBowl comment...  it's regarded as some of my finest work. ;)

I was hoping to catch you before you departed us for good old friend, b/c upon reading this, I realized your life expectancy just dropped to about 12 hours. Jesus himself ain't gonna be able to save you if Mel reads this post

The correct answer was "The Superbowl part is FOR our anniversary becuase I love you so much"

Yeeeeeah, ummmm...see I'm gonna need you to go ahead & make this up tp her with some sort of small, shiny object. Or, I'm pretty sure a day at the spa away from you & the kids? Seriously man, I'm hoping Mel dosen't read your blog. :-)

It's amazing the kind of nonsense that sounds like a good idea when it's in your head. :)
