So I’m in the hallmark store, right? And I have the same problem every time I go to pick out a card for my husband. Birthdays, anniversaries, Valentine’s Day – I put off getting a card because I know how aggravating it is. So I go to look under “husband birthday” or even “love.”
Half of it is sappy, saccharin drivel: “You’re the one I want to share my life with forever.”
The other half is cute puppies and bears.
I don’t have anything against puppies. Really I don’t. But couldn’t there be some middle ground? Hoping for some other way to send the very best, I check out the generic birthday cards. Several obstacles here:
1. I don’t need to make fun of my husband’s age. Yet.
2. It might seem creepy for me to give him some “here’s a hottie” wishes.
3. I think he may be past the beer cards.
4. Ditto for the bodily function cards. Those can from the children.
So I’m asking you. Begging you. Maybe you have a better idea? Post it here along with your resume. I’ll try and get you on board with the card people.
