#@!&&!!!

If you were to get a trial by a jury of your peers, I'm sure 99% of them would understand and downgrade the charge to involuntary homicide...

Oh sh.. I have the best idea.

Give her mom the trip! And have her mom take her too. Then you get a solid week to yourself with booze and hookers. Best vacation evar!

Tell your wife that as a surprise for her birthday, you are going to get out of the house and let her and her mom have some girl time.

Have fun in Mexico. Fly your bike there in lieu of a companion.

Birthday suprises are a bad idea in general. It's funny how the person having the birthday often has their own idea of what they would like to do.

You two get a week together. Your mom-in-law gets three weeks with her daughter. Should be enough.

Where in the Yucatan?

Exactly. Tell your wife that you and her are celebrating her actual birthday. Her and mom are celebrating Eastern Orthodox birthday (that's 12 days later btw). She gets 2 birthdays this year (but only one counts).
