Beautiful you say so then why am I divorced?

Why I Am now Divorced

Last week was my birthday and I didn't feel 
very well waking up on that morning. 
I went downstairs for breakfast  
hoping my husband would be pleasant and say,  
'Happy Birthday!',  
and possibly have a small present for me. 

As it turned out,  
he barely said good morning,  
let alone ' Happy Birthday.'  

I thought....   Well, that's marriage for you,  
but the kids.... they will remember.   

My kids came bounding down stairs to breakfast
and didn't say a word..  

So when I left for the office,  
I felt pretty low and somewhat despondent.  

As I walked into my office,  
my handsome Boss Rick, said,  
'Good Morning, lady,  
and by the way  
Happy Birthday! '   

It felt a little better  
that at least someone had remembered.   

I worked until one o'clock ,  
when Rick knocked on my door  
and said, 'You know,  
It's such a beautiful day outside,  
and it is your Birthday,  
what do you say we go out to lunch,  
just you and me..'   

I said, 'Thanks, Rick,  
that's the greatest thing  
I've heard all day. Let's go!'   

We went to lunch.  
But we didn't go where we normally would go.
He chose instead a quiet bistro  
with a private table.  
We had two martinis each  
and I enjoyed the meal tremendously.   

On the way back to the office,
Rick said, 'You know,  
It's such a beautiful day...  
We don't need to go straight back to the office,  
Do We?'   

I responded, 'I guess not.  
What do you have in mind?'  
He said, 'Let's drop by my place,  
it's just around the corner.'   

After arriving at his house,  
Rick turned to me and said,
If you don't mind,  
I'm going to step into the bedroom  
for just a moment.  
I'll be right back.'  
'Ok.' I nervously replied.  

He went into the bedroom and,  
after a couple of minutes,  
he came out  
carrying a huge birthday cake ...  
Followed by my husband 
my kids, and dozens of my friends  
and co-workers, all singing 'Happy Birthday'. 

And I just sat there....   
On the couch....
