Short and Sweet
Although you could be forgiven for thinking this would be about all my daughter's previous boyfriends (I could never understand her preference for short men), it actually means I am writing a very short post. It occurred to me yesterday that the only two things my husband finds fault with in me are that I never notice when he has had a haircut and I have never in all our 36 married years remembered our Anniversary, no, not even the first one. Yesterday was no different (thank you for your congratulations) - 36 years on 25th Feb. There was one difference: this year he forgot as well. In the end we both received text messages from big son (who had set up a reminder on his Facebook): we then guiltily texted each other (pretending we had remembered). Of course, we were found out later in the day, but had a good laugh. I haven't yet paused to examine the psychology of why I have these two failures, one of observation and one of memory and why they upset my husband. I think it has something to do with personality types.
