My father’s birthday is May 16th. I know because called me to remind me to call him on May 16th to wish him a happy birthday. Then I’ll call him and he won’t be home. So I’ll leave a message. Then I’ll get a sad call at 11:59p asking me if was OK because I didn’t call him on his birthday. Then I’ll ask whether he listened to his messages. And he’ll say, “No, I didn’t think to do that.” Oh, what fun. It happens every year.
