Marriage 301, Lecture 664: Optimizing scarce resources

SH: Are we going to [wxyz] tonight?

Me: I think we should.

SH: But that means I have to take a shower.

Me: Well yes.

SH: But I have to take another shower tomorrow [before he leaves on a business trip].

Me: So?

SH: That's just inefficient to take a shower at night and again the next morning!

Me: Since when have you been concerned with efficiency?

SH: It doesn't make sense.

Me: Fine. We don't have to [wxyz].
