ROLAND, IA - Local husband Justin Buble was "totally blindsided" by an event his wife only told him about every day for the past month, sources at the Buble household confirmed this afternoon.
"What are you going to wear for dinner with the Greers tonight?" his wife asked as she put her earrings on, taking Buble completely by surprise and ruining his plans to stay home and watch the Cubs game.
"That was tonight? Why didn't you mention it?" the man asked, perplexed, despite his wife having reminded him of the event constantly, several times a day, for the past thirty days, and despite the event being circled on the calendar prominently displayed in the kitchen and set up on the couple's shared Google calendar, which had sent a reminder a week before and the day before. "You really should give me some kind of heads up on these things. You can't spring them on me like this."
Buble eventually conceded that he "vaguely remembered" his wife talking about going to dinner at the Greers' house, leaving him several voicemails about it, texting back and forth about it, and her grabbing his face as he watched a ballgame and saying, "DO NOT FORGET. WE ARE GOING TO DINNER AT THE GREERS' HOUSE ON JUNE THIRD. OK? HONEY? PLEASE DON'T FORGET THIS TIME."
"I knew it was coming up - I just didn't know it was tonight. I wish she'd put in a little bit of effort with this stuff."
Here is a comprehensive list of the only instances it is acceptable for men to shed a tear.
