Allowance, Allow Twice At Low Price...

FB reminded me of my wife's birthday 2 days ago... Not that I have to be reminded of such special day... As a matter of fact, I already greeted her the night prior as soon as the clock struck out of Sept 1's last second while presenting my gift to her in all its "unwrapped" glory...

I was reminded again yesterday as if urging me on to FB-post a birthday greeting however late. But then, the thing is that, I don't really FB-post a birthday greeting for someone I can actually greet personally... As to anything event-related, I usually post an acknowledgment instead or a testimonial, a recollection and the like; not for her directly but for others to serve as witnesses to what I'd rather express seemingly shouting it to the world...

My wife then asked me how come I haven't greeted her on Facebook via any kind of posting... I was like "Huh?! Like I already greeted you last night..." Yes, that was totally "unsweet(ened)" or insensitive (not to mention inconsistent) of me if you must rub it in like that.

Apparently, she totally brushed off any possible special treatments. Little did she know, our kids were planning to treat the family for lunch with their week-earned allowance for her birthday come Sunday (which is today)... Naturally, I had to somehow confirm and conform if only to make sure it'll be as exact as to how far and where their amount of money can go considering that they rather spend for the whole thing without me shouldering the excess... No matter how simple, they rather forego of lavishness as long as the sincerity behind it is as hard-earned as their allowance. And of course, they wanted to take her to somewhere she'd most likely appreciate (the food). So, pizza and pasta they thought... Sbarro it is!
