He should have been an Afghan, I guess.

While maintaining my perfectly clean home this morning, I heard Brian giggle as he surfed the internet in his chair. Pausing to check out the source of his mirth, I glimpsed this article about women's rights in Afghanistan in view on the laptop.

"They made a law in Afghanistan that women have to give it up," he explained, still smirking.

I read a few sentences to see that "the wife is bound to give a positive response to the sexual desires of her husband" every fourth night. Hmm. In one American household of which I knew, one husband would be sorely irritated that the "positive response" was not demanded more frequently. Brian looked up at me with a grin.

"What are you laughing about?" I asked. "You don't need a law like that."

He reached up and pushed my head to the side, gloating. "That's right, woman!"

"But that's really sad," I continued. "I guarantee that not all husbands over there are like you."

"Yeah," he nodded, his righteous judgment now pointed away from me. "They suck."

Thus ended my discussion of current events with my husband.


  1. We had a golden lab for 13 years and treated her like family but I have to admit we never ever checked the consistency of her stools. We just let her out into the back yard to 'do her thing'

  2. I think about stool consistency all the time. If my wife does not keep that stool consistently under my feet, just like I like it when I'm watching the game, I beat the daylights out of her dog. Can you blame me??
