Do you want to beat me with a leather strap? Tie me up on an anthill? Make me watch an entire day of "Baywatch?" Go ahead! I'll do anything to make you forgive me for forgetting <occasion you forgot>.
I have no explanation, other than I'm a fool. <feeble explanation>. I have never felt stupider in my life.
Please know that I love you and I would never do anything to hurt you. I just forgot, and I am very, very sorry. Please forgive me, and I promise I will remember every single thing you say and do for the rest of your life...or at least I'll try.
Give me a call, OK?
