We've all been there. Sometimes its from something as simple as forgetting to take out the trash, to things as serious as forgotten anniversaries and birthdays. Whatever got you there in the first place, what are some of your prefered methods of returning from Fido's side to the Lil' Missus.

While really basic, I'm a big fan of flowers. No, not the crappy arrangements you find at most grocery stores. I go one better, and actually go out and pick her a bouquet of flowers from the local hills and what not. She loves this.

Another thing I do, whilst sleeping in the cold lonely, is write her love letters. I'm not very good at it, but she appreciates the effort I put into them, not to mention they're getting better as time goes on.

In my eight short years of marriage, I've come to finally understand the statement "it's the thought that counts". If she knows you stopped, in the middle of whatever you may or may not have been doing, and just think about her, it is sometimes enough to spring you from the hoosgow. How often do you think of her?

No, don't think about my wife...

Think about yours.

Ok, all joking aside, on to the question:

So, my fellow gentlemen, what are some things you do to get out of the dog house faster? What are some of the things she swoons over, no matter how small or large? Do tell, as there are fleas in here, and I'm getting a crick in my neck...

I'm not sure that question is the right one to ask? It sounds like you are asking how we can hide our faults faster than last time to get out of trouble without ramifications. Perhaps the best question to ask is this: How can we learn from our mistakes and avoid the doghouse altogether?
True contrition has been the best out for me. Never cave when you haven't done anything wrong. Never.
