she said: I'm glad there will be boys there to help load up the grill. and they'll be here to drop it off an unload it. I was worried about you doing all that work yourself.
he said: but you would have been there to help! it would have been fine.
she said: I wasn't planning to help. it's big. and heavy! and I'm a girl.
he said: well, if we had gone last night, how would we have managed?
she said: people in the store could have loaded it up. and I guess the boy would have been here to help unload it.
he said (teasingly): but wait...aren't you a feminist? what about equality between men and women? don't you think that women can do anything?
she said: yeah right. you know that's not true. you're thinking of your first wife.
actually, I would say just about anything if it got me out of doing stuff. but I really am a firm believer that there are things that boys should do and things that girls should do. he knows this. and since I am a girl, there are things that I do not do except in an emergency. such as:
- moving furniture
- or anything heavy
- mowing the lawn
- checking the oil, etc. in the car
- using the barbecue grill
- driving on long trips
- plunging toilets or any plumbing
- checking out strange noises
- changing a flat tire
there are probably lots of other things that I can't think of right now. but you get the idea. I know, I know. it's a good thing Brian is such a patient and wonderful man.
