    I just wrote out an anniversary card (it's tomorrow) to my wife, and I had brain lock and wrote on the envelope, "Happy birthday!" Which I crossed out. I still have time to get another card, but what do ya think? I think she'll think it's funny, but you never know.

    I'm a terrible person to be giving out love advice, but I would absolutely buy a new card.

    Why not just get a new envelope?

    And in the future put her name on the envelope not the event.

    Just ask her if she has last year's card and revise the date

    good call. Why pay for a whole new card when you can just get a new envelope?

    Weird-size card. Guess I'll get a new card.

    Just prop the card up against a vase of flowers. She'll never notice the missing envelope.

    I once wrote a birthday card to a Sarah, but wrote too quickly, and without thinking, put the h in place of the r. I crossed it out, rewrote the name and put "Eh" under it. She laughed. But that's kind of my style: An idiot.

    I also usually get birthday cards with the wrong date on them, like instead of someone's 16th, I'll get them a Winnie The Pooh card that has a poem to a person turning 1.

    Let it go and hope she's as dotty as you are. You'll be halfway through the birthday spanking before she thinks, "Hey, we usually do this in the summer."
