For most people, red roses symbolize love. For me, red roses symbolize the birthday that my husband "forgot". Years ago, my then boyfriend thought he was Joe Cool. He drove a motorcycle, wore pants tighter than most (it was an 80's thing), and walked around the college campus shirtless. (Picture this tall lanky guy, who had somewhat of a toned chest and arms, with skinny chicken legs).

The first year we starting dating, my birthday fell on the day of our accounting class. (Yes, Joe Cool took accounting). Since that was our first year as a couple, I didn't know what to expect for my b-day. After some careful prodding (not the interrogation that I really wanted to give him), I came to the conclusion that he had forgotten that it was my b-day.

By the time I reached home, I had several phone calls from him and my bestfriend, so I opted to call my bestfriend back. She promptly picked me up and to my dismay, we ended up at my boyfriend's house. Inside, he had a dozen, long stemmed, red roses waiting for me. with reservations to my favorite restaurant. Needless to say, since then, he has never tried to pretend that he forgot my birthday. And happily, he no longer thinks he is Joe Cool or wears tighter pants than me:)
