After a long, busy day at work, Jason was finally going home. He was tired.

He wasn't
thinking about anything special.
"Perhaps I should go into the supermarket in our neighborhood, and pick up a couple
ofpounds of strawberries," Jason thought.
While Jason was driving to the store, his phone rang. It was his wife, Jenny.
"Jason, where are you? Last night you promised to come home early to help me prepare the
food and decorate the house. You know that we're having a party tonight."
"Oh, no!" Jason said. "I had so much work today that I forgot about the party."
"I know it's always a good idea to remind you to come home early, even when you promise,"
said Jenny. "However, this time I expected you to remember."
At first, Jason didn't understand what Jenny was talking
about, but then he remembered:Jenny was having a party for him that night. It
was his fiftieth birthday!

Después de un largo y agitado día de trabajo, Jason finalmente se iba a casa. Él estaba cansado. Él no
estaba pensando en nada especial.
"Tal vez debería ir al supermercado de nuestro vecindario y recoger un par de litros de fresas", pensó
Mientras Jason conducía hacia la tienda, sonó su teléfono. Fue su esposa, Jenny.
"Jason, ¿dónde estás? Anoche prometiste volver a casa temprano para ayudarme a preparar la comida y
decorar la casa. Sabes que vamos a tener una fiesta esta noche".
"¡Oh no!" Jason dijo. "Tenía tanto trabajo hoy que me olvidé de la fiesta".
"Sé que siempre es una buena idea recordarte que vengas a casa temprano, incluso cuando prometas", dijo
Jenny. "Sin embargo, esta vez esperaba que recuerdes".
Al principio, Jason no entendió de qué estaba hablando Jenny, pero luego recordó: Jenny estaba teniendo
una fiesta para él esa noche. ¡Era su quincuagésimo cumpleaños!
