Ashes To Ashes...

... to Ash? Ah, never mind. It's Ash Wednesday today for those of you who weren't aware, the first day of Lent. But what am I talking about? Of course you already know what day it is (and isn't).

As Cecelia was kind enough to point out, Feminine Mind Control Day is only a week away, followed on the fifteenth (as facebook has informed me) by National "That's What She Said" Day, a made-up internet holiday enjoyed by double entendre enthusiasts everywhere. I have to admit that short of completing Plan 50-WD ahead of schedule (highly unlikely at the current rate at which funds are coming in around here), I have no idea how to celebrate FMC Day this year. It is, to the best of my memory, the first FMC Day since the start of our relationship (whenever that was) that Lindsey and I are likely to be in the same town for holiday. We have no established tradition here. Of course on its surface it's a fairly stupid holiday anyways, but that's what makes it so clever. Here is one day of the year where no matter how much she rolls her eyes (and she will), I get to give her some mushy card, gift, and flowers, and there's nothing she can do about it. That is the power of FMC Day. The only problem is that I'm stumped. What do I do?

Comments, as always, are welcome.

She'll like flowers and may not even roll her eyes about them. Gift-wise, usually chocolate or jewelry are the standard sort of gifts. However, you may want to check whether or not she's given up chocolate before you go that route. Good luck with your FMC :)

Give her a small chocolate shoe.

Ask your brother what he bought for Hannah the FMC day that they were engaged. If he doesn't remind him that he had to go through U-scan to buy it. If you already know the story then you already know my idea. I would find the Donal-version of it very enjoyable!
