Marriage 401, Lecture 323: Looking for my replacement
After another night of not turning out the light until almost midnight. Differing bedtime habits matter a lot more in a hotel than at home.
Me: You need a Nighttime Wife.
SH: A what?
Me: I'll be your wife during the day. I'll clean the house and make supper, but I want to be in bed by 10. After that, you can have a Nighttime Wife.
SH: Kind of like a job share?
The next morning, as I am waiting for SH to get ready so we can get breakfast.
Me: Stop worrying about how my makeup is packed! Can we please focus?
SH: Instead of saying, "Can we focus?" my Nighttime Wife is going to say, "Can we dawdle?"
SH: Should my Nighttime Wife be a whiner?
