today marks two years since mike asked me out. last year it was a tuesday and i was so busy that i forgot it was our 1 year "anniversary", as it were. i remembered the next day, i think, and was really upset that i missed it. mike told me not worry, "you'll remember next year." to make sure i did, i looked up next year on the calendar in my phone and set an alarm and wrote "i love mikey" in the text line.
that alarm went off about fifteen minutes ago. i hadn't forgotten what today was... but i did forget that i set that alarm.
if you had told me last year that mike would be engaged to my roommate and not speaking to me, i never would have believed you.
what i should have done is set an alarm on his phone.
