Just because Karen has a giving husband, and her birthday is soon- there is no reason to hold your significant other to the same standards as me. You don't need to pressure them about material things.
Just remember that it's the thought that counts, and be glad that they remembered at all.
I'm really too modest to admit what I bought, but I just dropped $300 on Karen's birthday here.
That's on top of the birthday present she's going to get as suggested by El Capitan in a post earlier in the week.
Please, you don't need to post your comments of congratulations on Karen having such a wonderful and giving husband, she knows how self effacing I really am.
