Life is about forgiving and forgetting!

I didn’t exactly forget…I just wanted your special day to last a bit longer – honest!?!?

I prefer to be fashionably late…I just can’t help being on trend!

I didn’t want everyone else to overshadow my amazing present!

I only forget my favourite people’s birthdays…If I remember, it’s a bad sign.

I was out fighting crime …I’m a superhero…but you can’t tell anyone.

I figured your birthday celebrations are more of a month-long thing.

You’re so amazing it just took me too long to choose the perfect gift…but I’ve found it now

If Facebook doesn’t alert me, I can't be expected to remember!
