Forty Lashes With a Wet Noodle

by Cate on February 3, 2007

What a loser. I totally forgot about The Neighbor Husband’s birthday yesterday. Well, in my defense, should there be one, I didn’t totally forget, I just got really mixed up. Hey, it happens. So all week, I’ve had in my head that his birthday is February 2nd, today. Last night, when I went to grab the link for the “A year ago today…” piece for the post, I spied last year’s post … and there it was, wishing The Neighbor Husband a happy birthday. Ooops. I looked over at the clock on my nightstand, and it was 10:30 pm. Too late to call. When I talked to him today, to deliver my mea culpa, the funny thing was he hadn’t even realized we didn’t call – he thought he had already talked to us. Shoulda kept my big mouth shut.

Seems this disease is catching. I told The Husband about it, mentioning the date, and he remembered today was his father’s birthday. He had thought tomorrow was the 2nd. At least he was spared the ooops.

So to make it up to The Neighbor Husband, see that picture in this post? That’s a creation from none other than Sandra Lee. I figure he might appreciate that. Goodness knows, he’s her biggest fan! Now help me out here, and come out of hiding to wish The Neighbor Husband a happy birthday. The good vibes just might help his menu planning for Sunday’s Super Bowl Finger Food spread.

Before I leave, I’m passing on a link for a free cookbook available for download from Barilla Pasta. Filled with recipes from popular celebrity chefs, they are donating $1 to Second Harvest for every cookbook downloaded, which you can do right here.

Until tomorrow…

A year ago today… the Two Foot Kitchen.
