My Heart Will Go On

One October, our friends had come over for dinner. It was one of those perfect fall days where the kids ran in and out of the house as the adults prepared the meal.

As the people were putting out all the condiments, plates, and such, our friend Kevin looked over at the wall. Back then, we used to get wild looking calendars. I can't remember what the theme happened to be that year, but it definitely caught Kevin's eye.

As he looked at the calendar, he called out to Larry. "Hey, this day has a heart on it? What does that mean?"

"Oh, that's our anniversary. Steve puts stickers on that day so I remember."

As I walked back in, Kevin called out to me. "Hey buddy, great idea with the stickers on the calendar."

I look puzzled. Kevin explained the conversation the two of them had as Larry came back into the room. I looked at Larry.

"You dumbass. Why did you tell him that was our anniversary?"

"Isn't our anniversary in October?"

"It is. But those stickers are the reminders for the dogs' heart worm medicine."

Happy Anniversary, to the man who could look at a sticker every month and just think it means our anniversary.

PS Heartguard has since changed their stickers to look like this. Was it because someone wrote them and told them this story? I'm not telling.
