I Am A Very Bad Person

I just rang my ex to let him know that a mutual friend of ours had her baby, and in the course of the conversation he mentioned he was hung over from going out for birthday drinks last night.

"Whose birthday?" I asked.

"Mine." he replied.

Umm, oops. He was fine about it, but I felt like an asshole. Hey, hang on a second, why wasn't I invited?...

FYI, you are so not a bad person... Didn't you say, ex? It is not your responsibility to remember their birthdays. 'Nough said.

Well, if it was anybody other than Mikey I would agree with you but we are still extremely close. We were friends, then lovers, then back to being very good friends again. He has done a lot for me, including giving me a free trip to visit him when he was living in Hong Kong and I was going through a rough time and lost my job. We have a very close bond still. I adore him, but we're better friends than boyfriends.

ahahahahahahahahahaaaaAHH!

good one, TOA ;)

the 14th is getting crowded, with Mikey, Ob, Phoebe (Ken and Al's eldest) and now Oliver! I remember getting a bit excited when the Pheebster was due because at first it looked like it would be the 12th (Pete's b/d) but then the 13th (mine) but then she popped out on the 14th... bum!

Exactly. If he didn't invite you, you're not obliged to remember. Tit for tat. :P

Michael said...

Don't listen to them. OF COURSE you need to remember his b-day, if for no other reason than he's HOTT. I mean, he's second only to the Rabbit on my list of never seen but vividly imagined Southern Hemisphere finery.

Although we have only met with him on the one occasion thus far, The Unholy Trinity (consisting of Father, Daughter and Unholy Bunny) think that Mikey is cute, funny, generous, wickedly funny and an all round great guy to hang out with.

But of course you would expect no less, from a TOA ex ...

:-)

Word Verification: wakmytxo. Wack My Texas Off? Hmmmmm ;-) I'm taking that as a sign y'all ...

Jeebus, speedy that means I missed your's and Ob's birthdays too. I'm so crap at this! At least I have Vanessa* to keep on track for next year...

In theory.

* My new diary. Why Vanessa? Because that is her name. Duh.

Crap. What, did your parental units all get together and plan this?
