So my wife's birthday, every other year, very annoyingly rears it's ugly head slap bang in the middle of an international tournament. The fixtures are never kind to me, and indeed I've just checked and this year it's England vs Costa Rica on that day. At the moment she's going with the "well it's my birthday and I *might* want to watch it but I just as well might not" line and I have gone with the "well it's your birthday and of course we'll do whatever you want to do on that day". Obviously my line has been crafted in order to guilt trip her into letting me watch it, but I fear I may have drastically undervalued her capacity for righteousness and entitlement. Oh well, we'll already be out by then won't we?
