This one is for you...
Occasion: His birthday
Event: A fight
Location: Separate cities... me - office, he - home
Mood: Me - glum, he - mad at me and glum
Trigger: Another phone call on his other phone, me told to hang on for a minute
Happening: Flower vendor's call to him for carnations from canary
Result: He back to phone - stunned and sheepish
Conversation: Aha! sweet.
Outcome: Exchange of apologies. Happy canary, happy him :) Happy Birthday to you once more... :)
