Me: If you're not going to do that tax thing, would you find the lamp thingie* so I can repair the lamp?
SH: I've already done a chore today!
SH: Brought the Corvair back from Bonnie and Gary's.
Me: That doesn't count.
SH: Why not?
Me: Because I don't care about that car.
SH: It does count! It's going to involve work in the garage [so the car will fit]. I'll be getting the yard waste bin down.
* From when the lamp that we rewired blew up ten minutes before my book club friends showed up and left my house smelling like an electrical fire, which is appropriate because it was indeed an electrical fire.
