I’m the first to agree that April 15th
comes too early every year. Just like my wife’s birthday, it sneaks up on me when I’m not looking and suddenly I find myself frantically scrambling at the last minute to buy a present and gather all the related accessories like a card, wrapping paper and dinner reservations. The same thing happens just before April 15th
, but at least I can apply for an extension – unlike with my wife’s birthday. Can you imagine the scene if I came home from work on my wife’s birthday to find her sitting expectantly in the living room, dressed and ready to go out for a special dinner, only for me to inform her that I had arranged for a 6-month delay on the celebrations? Take my advice – don’t try this at home.
