08:32 am - A Special Day II
"Are you calling in sick again today," I asked Charlie who had spent yesterday down with a bad cold.

"Yeah," he answered, "I mean, I'm at the point that I probably could go in, but it's not nice to make everyone else sick. I have to go in tomorrow, though, because it's a four-day weekend."

I looked at him, puzzled. "A four-day weekend?"

"Well, we get Thursday and Friday off, so I have to go in tomorrow to get stuff done," he explained.

"Yes, but why is it a four-day weekend?"

He looked at me like I was crazy. "Um ... Thanksgiving?" he prompted.

"No, honey, that's next week," I said gently.

"Really?" He looked at his watch in amazement. "Are you sure?"

"Yep, that's next week." I paused. "By the way, do you know what day this is?"

He sighed and looked sheepish. "Yes, I know what day this is."

"And what day is it?"

"It's November 14th."

"And what happens on November 14th?" I asked.

"It's our anniversary."

"And what do we say on our anniversary?"

He looked at me blankly for a minute, then replied, "I don't know! Usually we don't say anything and then on the 15th we say, 'Oh shit, we forgot our anniversary!'"

We stared at each other for a minute, then broke into giggles.

"Happy Anniversary!" we both said simultaneously.

So you see, even after 17 long, long years, there's hope for us all.
