Gretchen:  I thought you were going out with your girlfriend tonight. What are you doing here watching TV?

Hugh:  She’s mad at me.

Gretchen:  Why?

Hugh:  I forgot her birthday. It was last Tuesday and it completely slipped my mind. I forgot to put a reminder on my calendar. She’s moping and giving me the silent treatment.

Gretchen:  What are you going to do to make up for forgetting her birthday?

Hugh:  I’m just going wait it out and let it blow over. She’ll get over it.

Gretchen:  Are you sure you don’t want to get her a belated birthday present?

Hugh:  I’ll double up next year. I’ll get her something really special then.

Gretchen:  I don’t think it works that way. She’s not going to forget that you forgot her birthday. That’s always going to be sore spot.

Hugh:  It’s not like I did something really bad that I have to atone for. I forgot. What’s the big deal?

Gretchen:  Okay, you know best, but if I were her . . .

Hugh:  You’re not her. I apologized. Sooner or later, she’ll realize she’s blown this completely out of proportion and she owes me an apology.

Gretchen:  Okay, if you say so.
