Promising to avoid disaster like previous years, 45-year-old father-of-two Andrew Anderson has preemptively purchased a box of chocolates, setting it aside so that he can give it to his wife, Stacy, on Valentine’s Day, which he will inevitably forget about on February 14th.
The chocolates, which he made sure included his wife’s favorites, were a well thought out gesture, that will go completely unappreciated when, weeks after Valentine’s Day, it is found by his son in the closet, who will eat the candies without questioning where they came from.
“You know, they say it’s the thought that counts,” Anderson stated. “I mean, am I going to remember I bought this candy for my wife on Valentine’s Day? Probably not. Will I remember to wish her a Happy Valentine’s Day before she goes, ‘ahem. You know what today is, right?’ Absolutely not. But, I think she’ll appreciate that I at least tried to remember.”
Stacy Anderson has confirmed that the chocolates, which were actually hand-picked at a nice chocolate shop, would have been a great Valentine’s Day present, but she also claims that, “I know he’s not going to remember them, so yeah, he’s still going to be in the doghouse that night.”
