Re: A messy kitchen

Partial transcript from a Jeffchat this afternoon.  It follows a typical course, wherein I nag him about a lapsed household task, and he apologizes and promises to make things right.

BUT WITH A DELICIOUS TWIST.

me: i try to tell you over and over
i HATE HATE HATE a messy kitchen
there’s no reason for it
yet time and time again, our kitchen is messy
because you don’t keep it up

Jeffrey: yes i know. i’ve just been a little busy lately

me: and that’s REALLY FURSTRAING* to me

Jeffrey: anyway
it will be clean
FURSTRAING!

me: duh
obviously thats a straing of furs

Jeffrey: awesome
FURSTRAING!

(PS> FURSTRAING!)

(PPS>Also, in my defense, dishes are one of three chores Jeff has – the other two being taking out the trash, and paying bills.  So it’s not like I just sit on my duff whining – I take care of all the cooking, cleaning, and laundry ;-))

*Was, of course, supposed to be “FRUSTRATING”  But you knew that.  I hope.

  1. my husband’s chores include Dishes and… super awesome handy man. But mostly he doesn’t do the dishes. He does always clean the shower and take out the trash unless i do before him. And he’s a mighty good handy man. That’s all I have to say.

  2. Leave him alone. Use paper plates. He’s doing some very important work right now, preparing for a career so he can keep you in cute aprons and chicken feed and the Hooplings in shoes. Don’t mess with Jeff.
