Marriage 301, Lecture 651: Next, it's a chartered jet
After I returned home from a five-day visit with my mom.
Me: You did laundry!
Me: Did you hang the clothes on the line?
SH: No. Just my shirts. I put them on hangers and put them outside.
Me: What did you do with the rest of the stuff?
SH: Put it in the dryer.
SH: Yeah, I know I am the environmentalist and the Oh We Should Conserve Energy! person, but I didn't have time for that.
Me: No time?
SH: I was busy. I swept the basement and cleaned the dehumidifier and cleaned the cat box.
Me: So basically, saving energy is something other people should do.
Me: You tell them what the right thing is to do and they do it, but you don't have to do it yourself.
SH: That's right. I'm busy.
