It's Good Friday, but Sunday's a comin’ (standard:humor, 904 words)

As we celebrate Good Friday, a very special day, remember that its goodness comes from the following Sunday when Jesus rose victoriously over sin and the grave.

For those who follow the church calendar Good Friday is a special day,
one of the high religious days among many Christians. Personally, I 
think it is a good one to remember and celebrate. 

Overall, apart from a few exceptions, I do not like special days. As far
as I'm concerned, every day I get up and take nourishment is a special 
day for me. 

Everybody seems to have their own special day and I find it rather
difficult to keep up on all of these "special days." If a person would 
honor and celebrate every "special day" posted on the calendar there 
would be no days to get any work done whatsoever. And, as luck would 
have it on my side, I would miss a very special "special day." 

I am in favor of setting aside one day a month as the official "special
day" of the month in which everything that anybody wants to celebrate 
during that month could be included. That way we could get the 
celebrating of special days done and then we can get back to business 
as usual. 

One of the most frightening phrases a husband can hear is, "Do you know
what anniversary it is today?" 

Every husband has been backed into a corner like this sometime during
his marital career. I for one say it is not fair. Because everyone 
knows special is as special remembers, which puts husbands at a great 

It is not that men cannot remember, a man's memory is limited and so he
must be very selective. And to be honest about this, anniversaries are 
simply not on any man's radar. 

I learned this very early in my relationship with the young woman who
graciously accepted my invitation of matrimony. 

We had been dating for around a month and one night when I picked her up
to go out, she said something that confused me. "You know this is our 
first anniversary?" 

My confusion lay in the fact that an anniversary had to do with
something yearly. I had only known her for several months at the time. 
I know time gets away with a person, but this was rather ridiculous. In 
the short time we had known each other, it was impossible for us to 
have an anniversary of anything. 

It was at this point I did something, although innocent enough at the
time, that I have regretted the rest of my life. I looked at her and 

That was when I was introduced to the marvelously mysterious world of
women-lore. With a woman, anniversaries are not something to laugh 
about, at least in their presence. An anniversary is something to 
celebrate whether it makes sense or not. 

When I realized how serious the situation was, I wiped that silly grin
off my face and inquired as to what anniversary she was referring to. 

"Why, don't you know," she said as seriously as I have ever seen her up
to that point. "This is the first month anniversary of our going out 

Now, what do you do on the first month anniversary of going out as a
couple? However, the thing that really frightened me was, do we 
celebrate this every month? 

What is the protocol for these monthly anniversaries? How do I keep
track of all of this? What gift is appropriate? I was afraid that I 
would go broke before we got around to getting married. 

I would come to discover that these "monthly anniversaries" were to
continue until they were superseded by a more important anniversary. Of 
course, her responsibility was to select the anniversary that would 
trump the monthly anniversaries. 

My responsibility? To remember the latest anniversary.
