Beam Me Up Scotty


Me: How about we go see Star Trek on Sunday?

Hubster: Sure!

Me: Yep. On SUNDAY.

Hubster: Okay...

Me: Because it's a Special Day.

Hubster:

Me: You don't know what's on Sunday, do you?

Hubster: Er.... Star Trek?

Me:

Hubster:

Me: SUUUUUNDAY. A "Special Day".

Hubster: *Click* Oh! (Face contorts into that Holy Crap! expression)

Me:

Hubster: I nearly forgot!

Me: I know. (Yeah... NEARLY forgot....) Happy 29th Anniversary to you too there honey.

Marriage

The final frontier

These are the lame excuses of the starship Man-terprise

It's continuing mission

To lie about forgetting your anniversary

To explore strange new cover-ups and new excuses

To boldly pretend that it was all part of a surprise party!

Maureen said...

Ahahahahahaha!!! OMG that was hilarious and perfect, Be.Bart! Live long and prosper; cause hubby may not...

Bruce said...

Guys are more visually oriented. Men don't do well with dates or figures, it is in the genes, it isn't his fault.

On another note, we both did Star Trek related posts today......check mine out!

Maureen said...

Bruce: After 29 years, I definitely know that men in general can't remember a date to save their lives. I even have to remind him about his own family's birthdays. Once he is given the hint, he'll plan something special; he just needs that reminder.

And great minds think alike, eh? Loved your post!

Maureen:

What a great surprise. Hubster took you to see Star Trek on your special day. And you thought he forgot.

Happy trails.

Ann(ie) said...

awwww. Happy Anniversary!! Sunday is ours, too and Matt would be so thrilled if I wanted to see Star Trek. I'm making him take me to dinner. ;) Have fun!!!

Shawn said...

Happy anniversary! Enjoy Star Trek. I saw it last weekend and liked it, even though I've never seen a single other movie or TV show. If you're coming into it already a fan, it's probably a lot better.

jay said...

Ahahaha! How well I know that 'Oh crap' expression! LOL!

Congratulations! Twenty-nine years is good going!

I wanna see Star Trek, too, by the way. It's on next week on IMAX in London, and I'm trying to persuade OH it would be a good idea.

Jay said...

Love be.bart's comment!

Maureen said...

Swubird: He hasn't taken me yet... so he's not out of the woods for far ;)

Maureen said...

Ann(ie): Cool! June 7th for you too? There is a girl at work who also shares the same day... I guess it was a popular choice. Happy Anniversary to you too!

Maureen said...

Shawn: Aw thank you! Yes, we have seen them all; I grew up with the TV show. A true Geek I am.

Maureen said...

Jay: Ooooh... seeing on IMAX would be awesome! We have IMAX here too, but I don't think it's playing there yet. And yes, Be.Bart killed me with that one.

pinklea said...

be.bart's comment is most excellent.
And Star Trek is also most excellent. You will enjoy it immensely - and happy anniversary Maureen!

VioletSky said...

You might want to start the visual reminder hints in January next year so he has lots of time to book that special anniversay trip to beyond Star Trek.

In the meantime, Happy Anniversay and enjoy the movie - I've still to see it, but this Sunday it is Up! for me. In 3D.

Maureen said...

Thank you Pinklea! I can hardly wait to see it... going first thing Sunday (first show) is always a good time to go. We've gone to a few movies then.

Maureen said...

Violet Sky: Ha! I think you are right (gets out my diary and flips to 2010...) Oh UP looks great; we saw the trailer before the Wolverine movie a few weeks back. Have a great time too!

Babs-beetle said...

Ha ha! Typical!
Happy anniversary for Sunday, and enjoy Star Trek (as if you wouldn't) :O)

Maureen said...

Babs: Thank you so much... I am looking forward to it!

The Gossamer Woman said...

29 Years of being each other's friends and confidants? Or is it the old ball and chain? I've been married 19 years and 15 years and never did marry the right man. I think there is no such thing for me. I'm bound to be a single woman.

Congratulations, Maureen. I wish you all the happiness in the world.

Janet said...

You're so kind to give him a pointed hint! :-) Happy Anniversary to you guys!

Maureen said...

The Gossamer Woman; Thank you. Definitely not a ball and chain, at least for me. I'm not asking hubster that ;) No, really I can't believe it's been that long, so I guess if the time has flied by, it must be a good sign, no?

Maureen said...

Janet: Yes, I told him I knew him all too well (I should after all this time) and he's lucky I'm so understanding. :) Thank you so much!

Vegas Princess said...

At least you'll be seeing a great movie and probably get lots of "I'm sorry I'm an idiot" presents! :)

JD at I Do Things said...

HA! At least he finally did remember, even with a lot of prompting. In my house, it's me who forgets. I just have no head for dates, even my anniversary. There's always a noticeable pause whenever someone asks me my wedding date. Uh . . . May . . . 12?

The Stabbing Pen said...

I'm not married, but I think that when I am someday, I'll be prepared. I'll have a go-to list of stuff about the relationship that I do recall that I can refer to, to keep her from getting too pissed off.

Jeff said...

What? 29? I think that must be a typo. What, did you get married when you were 10?

Anyway, congratulations to both of you. Hope you enjoyed your date!

nipsy said...

Oh ouch..gotta love those forgotten anniversaries. Then again they usually make up for it with awesome gifts and the guilt factor is good for at least another year.

Maureen said...

Vegas Princess: It WAS a great movie! We had a great time; and as for presents - we are going to get something together that we need. Now we just have to figure out what exactly that is.

Maureen said...

JD: Well, at least our homes have ONE person who will remember... I can't imagine what the heck would happen if you and my hubby had met... ;)

Maureen said...

The Stabbing Pen: After 29 years, I don't get pissed off anymore. I have, sadly, just come to expect it. You can't change a person; don't even try. Just laugh at each others foibles.

Maureen said...

Aw, Jeff, thank you. Aren't you sweet! I was 19 when we got married, so everyone can now to the math... ;)

Maureen said...

Nipsy: I don't have to wait a year. Come falltime, I'll have to remind him of my birthday too.

VE said...

It was obviously a divergence in the space-time continuem that caused this anniversal rift. He should practice one of Dr. McCoy's famous lines "Damnit Maureen...I'm just a man..." There...that should do it...

As to the movie...I'm still wondering if Spock can claim Spock as a dependent...

Maureen said...

VE: Har! Spot on McCoy! He was a great fit in the new movie; actually, I think all the casting was very well done. As for Spock, I doubt he has to pay taxes... it's simply too illogical.

Ed said...

Say whatever you want but I'm with Jeff, you couldn't have been any older than 10 when you got married.

Happy Anniversary.
