…when it comes to remembering dates, things like birthdays even my own kids, escapes me sometimes.
My wife’s birthday is a different story, it never leaves my mind, probably because I know I’d be killed if I forgot it.
…that’s another thing, women and birthdays.
My wife is like a Rolodex when it comes to who’s birthday is when. Me, my head’s like a sieve. But that’s for another email.
…back to the story.
It all began on a cold, damp and foggy night.
I was travelling home on my motorbike, after visiting Catherine at her house in the local town of Dundalk.
We’d only been going out a while, and she’d told me to be careful on my way home, especially as it was late and I was on a motorbike.
…hey what can I say…she loved me. 🙂
At the time I was still living at home, so it was a ten mile journey, but one I did on a daily basis.
I knew the road like the back of my hand, and even on a foggy night, I knew where every pot hole, corner, and piece of gravel was.
The one thing I didn’t expect to see, and didn’t see until the last second, was a cow standing in the middle of the road.
I’ll never forget whistling past it at 70 miles an hour, mere inches from it.
To say my heart skipped a beat was an understatement. If it had moved a foot or two into my lane, I’d had it.
I looked back in my mirror at the black and white shape that disappeared in the fog, and thanked the man above. He’d let me off that time.
Although I can’t remember the date, that moment will always be stuck in my mind.
I’d imagine in thirty years from now I’ll still be able to recall that moment when I came eye to eye with that cow.
But ask me about any other date and I’m left scratching my head and counting with my fingers.
What can I say…I’m a man. Not too much stays for long on the old hard drive in my head.
That’s where calendars come in handy. Even with all the technology that we have, a calendar on the wall is a God send.
And especially if you’re a man and there’s a birthday coming up. You can’t say you didn’t see the date with the big red X on it.
Alessandro Zamboni has just released a new course that’ll show you how to add another income string to your bow…making and selling calendars.
I know you’d think that they’re old school, but they’re just as popular as ever, and you could be selling your own too.
Imagine how many you’d have for next year if you started now.
