Marriage 401, Lecture 353: It's not in my job description


Me: Oh good grief. Look what Shirley did. She scraped dirt out of the plant.

SH: That's going to be a pain to clean up.

Me: Yes, it is.

SH: Well, you better get to it.

Me: Me? But you're her favorite.

SH: You're the cleaning up person around here.

Me: If you have time to waste arguing with me about politics and whining about being sick, you have time to clean up after the cat who is your favorite.

Maybe a bit of gravel - or better, grit - on top of the soil would stop her. I understand cats don't like the feel of the grit.

Just check to make sure she isn't using it for a--ahem--pot.

Webb, I just moved it to a cat-free zone. I don't think Shirley can be deterred by anything.

Anon - ew.
