June 19th

Today used to be one of those dreaded "I need to find a gift" days; June 20th is Shirley's birthday. I'm not very good at buying gifts, especially gifts for special days. If there is a practical need though, then I'm pretty proficient at getting stuff. I once bought Shirley either a printer or computer speakers for her birthday. Even though she needed it, I don't think she was too happy. I learned my lesson though; next year I bought her a silver/diamond bracelet (although she left it behind).

I think it's because I don't like getting gifts that much as I usually get things I don't really want. I agonize over what to give as gifts since I'm always afraid that person won't like the gift. That's why cash or gift cards are so much more convienent, although nothings says "I love you" like writing a check... :)

Anyway, June 19th will become just another day in the calendar, same as February 13th, July 30th, and December 24th.
