Keeping The Thrill Alive

Husband: Did you notice I did the dishes?

Me: Mmm. Mmm.

Husband: Man. I thought you would be more excited. To you know - wake up to no dishes.

Me: (Pause) The Sneeze says that husbands and wives should greet each other with crazy big enthusiasm when they walk in the door. Maybe we should be like that when we tell each other about mundane chores that we've accomplished?

Husband: Kay.

Me: I cleaned the toilet.

Husband: Fucking A! Hey, I took out the recycling!

Me: Oh My God! You rock! (High fiving each other). I overdrew the checking account!

Husband: Sweet! Heeey....wait a minute.

I'm always annoyed at husband when he expects praise for household chores...although the "high fiving" thing could work like magic for slipping bad stuff in.

We are totally going to do this at my house from now on. "I walked to the end of the driveway and got the mail!" "I cleaned the lint screen in the dryer!"
