5 Worst Excuses For Not Getting Your Wife A Valentine’s Day Present

I found this in the sermon Jason and I are translating this week.  Given the Internet is rife with lists like this, I’m sure it’s borrowed from elsewhere, which is borrowed from elsewhere, which is borrowed from elsewhere, etc.  So I don’t know who ultimately to give credit to, but it made me chuckle, so I’ll pass it on one more time:

Five Worst Excuses For Not Getting Your Wife A Valentine’s Day Present:

#5     “Valentine’s Day is a conspiracy driven by Hallmark and Hershey’s, and I refuse to play into their hands.”

# 4     “But you said we were not getting each other gifts this year!” (said as she hands you a gift)

# 3     “But I did get you a present! Why do you think I shoveled the driveway last week?”

# 2     Today is Valentine’s Day?? I thought the 14th was Presidents Day!

And the # 1 worst excuse for not getting your wife a Valentine’s Day gift….

“Sorry, Honey.  The groundhog ate your present.”

 

I like originality.  I’ll just have to think of another one to use this year.  We don’t have groundhogs here San Juan and I also couldn’t use #3 anyway.

Hmmmm…think, think, think.  (maybe it will be easier just to go buy something!)

    Bethie read this post on her computer and came into the office and asked me, “So what are going to get me?!?”
    I replied, “Ummm…a groundhog? There seems to be shortage of them around here.”

    My wife is related to the founder of Hershey’s. Then again, we haven’t seen much of the Hershey fortune coming our way… yet……
