You know the carol The Twelve Days of Christmas?
On the third day of Christmas
My true love gave to me:
three French hens
two turtle doves and
a partridge in a pear tree.
So I got in with some friends a few years ago where we counted down the 12 days to Christmas with a gift a day for our husbands. Like the song goes, we used the number of the day we were on for our theme. Day 1, maybe a note “You’re the only one for me” taped to a Hershey’s Kiss. Day 2, “We make a great pair” tied to a pear with his lunch. Day 3, a three-pack of tic-tacs or underwear.
Well, I realized it was already Day 4 and I hadn’t given him the coupon.
“Shoot! If only I’d remembered on Day 1. I would’ve gotten away with only one.”
So the Mister got a whoppin’ four, which in keeping with the number theme, would be good ’til April 4.
I never saw the man so happy. He danced around and promptly hopped to the computer where he scanned the coupon to Facebook. There were moments that day when he wished he had them in the car to redeem.
Ladies, the coupon takes minutes and costs nothing but the bit of blood you get biting your tongue.
