That story of being a good woman reminded me of one time when I worked at Turin Networks. It was a Friday afternoon and I was visiting the Customer Service guys in their area and we were all sitting around talking (and probably having that end-of-the-week drink of somebody’s wine). A phone rang and the owner answered it. It was his wife. She needed him to come home and help hang curtains.
He got up and said: Gotta go guys–or my Honey Do list will get longer.
I heard: honeydew…and I asked: What’s a honeydew list? And the five guys in the lounge turned and looked at me a bit dumbfounded. And as I said honeydew, I realized it was: Honey Do.
Oh. I laughed. I get it.
Maybe, I joked. Maybe that was my problem. Maybe I don’t have Honey Do lists and that’s why my husband and I were having so many problems. I told them. Hmph. I’m from the Yukon. If something needs done. I do it. Not only that. If I need curtains hung, first I make the curtains. Then I hang them.
I got five simultaneous proposals for marriage.
