SH: If we didn't have cats, the house would be a lot cleaner. No cat hair. No cat vomit.
Me: No cat snot on the windows.
SH: I don't care about clean windows.
SH: I want the blinds closed most of the time anyhow.
Me: But clean windows are nice!
SH: I don't care.
Me: Didn't you have clean windows when you were a kid?
SH: I guess.
Me: Didn't your mom keep a clean house?
SH: My mother is a very good housekeeper! Was a very good housekeeper.
Me: Uh huh.
SH: She made me help her with vacuuming. That's why I am so good at vacuuming now.
Me: Didn't she make you do other chores?
Me: So you never cleaned windows when you were a kid?
SH: No. She did all the dusting, too.
Me: Wait. She had two children yet she did all the work? That's the main reason to have kids - so you have someone to delegate to. Your mother did not do it right.
SH: Yes she did.
Me: If I were dying and confined to my bed, would you clean the windows for me, inside and out?
SH: Well sure. In the bedroom. Where you could see them.
