Schrodinger’s Mother-in-law

We had a sort of real-life Schrodinger's Cat situation yesterday. We didn't have a cat in a box, but we had an anniversary e-card due to be sent.

It is Gab's parents' wedding anniversary today, and we were planning to send them an e-card this morning. Then we got a phone call from Gab's mother late last night and she asked "Will I be getting an e-card tomorrow, then?"

We said "Now you'll never know if we remembered your anniversary because you won't be able to tell if we would have sent one anyway, or if we are only sending one because you reminded us."

She just couldn't resist. She opened the box, the quantum wave function collapsed and we sent the e-card.
