That last panel is a ready-made greeting card
I can relate to this as I have had to totally give up surprising my wife as she hates it.
It goes MUCH smoother if I involve her in the planning...
One of the greatest things one of my friends ever said was that a certain guy she was crushing on "would make a great 4th husband."
Happy Anniversary. Now hold hands, you lovebirds.
I know I've been on a Mitch Hedberg kick lately, but I read the third panel, last bubble in his voice.
As a fellow 'Surprise hater" I'm glad missy found someone who gets it is not negotiable or just a "minor quirk".
I mean, assuming that is factual, otherwise feel free to call me a weirdo.
My anniversary is on the twenty.... first? (that or third) of September. I'm going to be doing... exactly this. Familiar but well loved restaurant and since I took an entire week off work, lots of me cooking food she already likes. My wife hates surprises, so she picked her -engagement- ring, and the day I'd propose to her.
My ex-wife hated surprises but I did them anyways. nuf said.
OK, I am totally stealing panel 1 for my own use. Unfortunately, I can't see how to adapt it to kid's birthdays.
Over the years, the repeated commonalities between your life and mine continues to amaze me: my anniversary is this week....we are going to dinner at a restaurant with which my wife is already familiar.
Eerie. Not creepy - just eerie.
