How To Get The Wife's Attention...
...in three easy steps.
(1) Determine the clothes dryer is malfunctioning and tear it down to parade rest while she's out at church.
(2) Greet her as she walks in the door with, "We're gonna be drying clothes in the garage for a few days while I wait on parts."
(3) Insure the disassembled dryer is easily seen by leaving the pieces/parts laid out on the kitchen floor.
Hey, the damned thing wasn't working and I'm the stay-at-home parent so no big deal, right?
Oy vey! Dangerous...
Oooh, we went through this last year. Hand her a rose! :-) Best wishes with the laundry!!!
Adrienne, well who would want to live a boring life?
Stacy Trasancos, thanks. Maybe next time I'll give more warning.
Roses work, I've used them before.
It could have been worse ... you could have picked out a new pattern of wallpaper for the bedroom and started putting it up without consulting her first. I'd give you a longer life span sprinkling arsenic on your eggs.
Men...sigh. If you were my husband, the dryer wouldn't be the only thing missing parts. ;-)
Anthony, it definetly could have been worse. After 13 years together this wasn't entirely unexpected. But I SHOULD have given some warning.
Mary Ellen/Nunly, theres a fair amount of give and take between the wife and I. It's a case of water seeking it's own level.
