Surprise Father's Day

     Last Sunday I received an email wishing me a Happy Father's Day.

    Now I'm somebody who does not keep tabs on Father's Day at all. I just don't know when it is so when somebody wishes me Happy Father's day a week early I don't know the difference. So I really thought it was Father's Day.

     I thought I'd wait until the end of the day without mentioning it to my wife. Then at the end of the day I would have some fun and tease her about missing Father's Day.

     I started thinking about things. Maybe it isn't Father's Day and if I teased my wife about missing it I would  be the butt of my own joke.

    I had a plan. I would look on the calendar and see what date is Father's Day. Yes! Father's Day was a week later.

    So I told my wife that my daughter had wished me a happy father's day a week early. We both had a chuckle about it.

    Now I couldn't let my daughter away with something like this. She's too much fun to miss teasing. I knew she's be quick with an excuse. I thought maybe the American Father's day is a week before ours and that would be her excuse.

    She had a better excuse. She's in Austria right now and told me that it was Vater dag so she got mixed up or so she claimed.

    Well, no matter what I appreciated the Father's Day greeting.
