He's lovely, really ...  
Mr Brammers on Tuesday night: Now listen, since you were late getting me your birthday list, and yesterday was hell and today was a holiday, I'm only going to have tomorrow to go shopping for your birthday, so things may not be as exciting as I was planning.

Me: What's wrong with shopping on Thursday?

Him: Well, you'll want something on Thursday morning, won't you? And then you'd want to do presents rather than have me go late-night shopping.

Me (testily): For my birthday that falls on Friday?

Him: Ah. Friday. Not Thursday, then.

Me: How long have we been together?

Him. Thirteen years. Fourteen? Is it fifteen? You do a really good outraged face, you know!


NB: You lot are all quite allowed to forget my birthday, because god knows I am shocking at keeping up to date with my flist's (and at my age, it does not hurt people to forget a few years have passed), but he and I have been together since 1995! Grrrrr!

On a related note, symetric  for yesterday and to separatrix  for tomorrow! I am sending you great gift and relaxed Cake Day wishes!

I don't think that not knowing the days of the week in relation to the dates of the month counts as forgetting your birthday. He clearly knew the date, or he wouldn't be worried about it at all. He is just off on the days of the week this week.

PS Happy Birthday!

No, he sincerely thought it was the 28th. Grrrrr!

I forgave my ex for forgetting because he forgot his own b-day. I just took a day off and did my own thing. He could come along if he wanted to.

His birthday is the only one he recalls. The rotter.

Hm, it appears he's doing what my boyfriend calls 'KL Math', which started when we'd been together six months or so and I started thinking it had been a year. It's been over nine now, but he still has to remind me when the anniversary most of the time.

Mr B is vaguely aware that we must have an anniversary, but that's about as far as it goes ;-) He's good looking at least ...

My husband asked me yet again, 'Your birthday's the 25th, right? The 22nd?" but I have to let it go because I NEVER remember our anniversary. I know one day is our anniversary and the next is our daughter's birthday, but I mix them up constantly.
blamebramptonblamebrampton on January 27th, 2010 02:13 pm (UTC)
I've given up on the idea of an anniversary. At least he is so vague that I have no worries of him straying, he would never notice anyone trying to pick him up nor be able to pay attention long enough to pick anyone up himself ;-)

Small Girl: "today is your pretend birthday, mummy, and we can have a party!"
Me: "actually, it is my real birthday in one month, perhaps we should save our cake and streamers for then."
Blondie: "is it? shit!"

Mr B is vaguely aware that we have an anniversary, but says that he is grateful for me every day and so a dinner and gift would be redundant. I have pointed out that he is ever so lucky I am the sort of woman who doesn't need dinner and gifts. Except on my birthday ;-)

Hmmm... I got the comment "What did I get you for Christmas?" from hubby as I unwrapped the lovely perfume I bought myself :) Why can't we have fanon husbands?
blamebramptonblamebrampton on January 27th, 2010 02:03 pm (UTC)
They would all be gay ;-)

Does he buy his own gifts, too? That would be fair, at least. Oh well, they have some redeeming qualities. Mr B is at least good looking and delightful aside from having the memory of a haddock.

This is cute, I enjoyed reading this.
How long have you been together?
blamebramptonblamebrampton on January 27th, 2010 02:47 pm (UTC)
Since July 1995. Although apparently it doesn't seem that long to him ;-)

Happy Birthday, darling. ♥

He is, the bugger. He relies on it as a survival instinct ;-)

Well, so the man got it correctly at last, no? :)))


>You do a really good outraged face, you know!

LOLOLOL. Priceless.

No, you don't get your "Buon Compleanno" one second before the 29 :PPP
blamebramptonblamebrampton on January 28th, 2010 08:27 am (UTC)
I am thinking I shouldn't have said anything until after I got the early present, then demanded another silly one for the proper day (our first present comes just after midnight and is always very foolish).

And yes, he is very amusing, and gets away with murder because of it. And rightly so in having me wait!
shu_shu_sleepsshu_shu_sleeps on January 27th, 2010 08:28 pm (UTC)
aww bless Mr B :)

Himself regularly forgot my birthday despite over 17 years together, and also regularly failed to spell my surname correctly.... I always put it down to his dyslexia.

The scary thing is - the conversations we would have about it were almost identical - word for word - honest to god!

In case I forget (I will be doing an exam, and likely freaking out a bit) happy birthday for tomorrow!
blamebramptonblamebrampton on January 28th, 2010 08:35 am (UTC)
There are only so many Boy Excuses they are taught at Boy School ;-) Thank you! And I am pleased to see that you should be finished in time for your day!

Give him points for trying Brammers.

I hope you have a good birthday tomorrow.
blamebramptonblamebrampton on January 28th, 2010 08:35 am (UTC)
He's a good lad, aside from the memory thing. Thanks, dear!

This is true ;-) He is a lovely chap really, though he gets away with the most appalling things due to his ability to make me laugh when I am meant to be outraged. And thank you!
