Living In A Vacuum

Yesterday while eating breakfast and reading the paper, my wife asked me what my plans for the day were.  I said “nothing special. Why”?  She said she could use a little help around the house.  Being the compliant househusband that I am, I agreed and asked what I could do.  She replied “well, I would really appreciate it if you would vacuum the bedrooms”, so I said I would.

Sometime later, when she observed me watching TV, she asked if I had done the bedrooms as she hadn’t heard the vacuum running.  I told her I tried, but the vacuum appears to be broken.  At least, I couldn’t get it started.  With a puzzled look, she asked me to show her.  So I did.  Some women just won’t accept anything on faith.  Just sayin.

About oldmainer

I am retired and live in southern Maine with my wife and two dogs. I started Oldmainer as an outlet for my occasional opinions and random observations, with some poetry thrown in. I welcome anyone that wants to kick back and join me here on the porch, exploring all the gifts we have been given and the memories collected. Thanks for stopping by.
