He Will Pay
Lucky 13. 13 has always been my lucky number. My daughter was born on not only the 13th, but Friday the 13th. I knew that day 13 was my lucky number. But it does not seem to be the case today. No, today is not the 13th, in fact it is the 11th, 11-11. I like that number too. Veterans day, a very special day for all. But this day is a very important day in my life. It was 13 years ago today that we were married in an old Dairy barn (believe me when I say it showed NO SIGNS of being a dairy barn other than shape!) by a retired OHP Trooper who married a police officer to a fireman. It was a cold day too. It snowed that morning, making me think the wedding would not be attended by very many people. It doesn't usually snow that early in Oklahoma but that day it did. And it was on a Saturday. Football day, OU vs OSU. Oh my gosh. I was getting married on bedlam day. What in the world were we thinking???? I was an avid OSU fan. I always go for th underdogs and OSU when playing OU was usually the underdogs...big time. This day was a special day. It was my second marriage. Never believing my first marriage would end in divorce but it did. After being single for a little over 2 years I was introduced to my husband by a mutual friend. Every body that meets Scott will tell you that he is the nicest guy. He is very thoughtful of others, he has a huge heart, and very good intentions. and today.... HE IS IN THE DOG HOUSE. He forgot our anniversary. Yes, he flat forgot it. I expect the kids to forget, his daughter didn't forget, she called to tell him happy anniversary and he was like "uh oh". He forgot. He flat forgot. Of course my son and his wife didn't remember. I love cards, I love remembering special days, that is my love language. Not every one has the same....I think that is fair to say. So not only did my son and his wife forget, so did my husband. My daughter remembered while she was talking to me or she would have probably forgotten too. But she is good to call me nearly every day. And Scott's daughter said she will call him next year the night before to remind him. I think that is funny. Maybe she should call him the week before so he can plan something. So....what should the punishment be for forgetting our anniversary? Oh he will pay, believe me, he will pay.
Oh by the way, 13 years ago, OSU beat OU. Now I have switched to an OU fan ( I love Bob Stoops) and bedlam is the Saturday after Thanksgiving.....I wonder who will win this year?
