Tonight we went to our friend Lauren’s birthday dinner. It was great, we drank from beer towers and I got roasted duck for dinner. Anyhow, suddenly people are unloading gifts and cards and I’m like:
Me: oh, I feel bad we didn’t bring anything tonight.
Abe: didn’t you mail her a card?
Me: no, I mailed your niece Lauren a card.
Rewind to the day we left for San Francisco.
Abe: it’s Lauren’s birthday, we should send a card.
Me: ok, I have some here at work.
– 2 hours elapse –
Me: What is your sister’s address, I don’t have her new one.
Abe: [emails the address]
Me: [Mails the card!!]
So obviously there was some serious miscommunication here. We have a friend named Lauren and we have a niece named Lauren. Also we have 7 nieces and nephews and 7 siblings plus 4 parents to keep track of.
Married life is complicated sometimes.
