I had to get up pretty damn high to prune the top of that tree, and carrying 60 lb air conditioners up 6 flights of stairs is no easy task. I’d call that “man’s work.” The only reason I don’t change her oil is her car’s still under warranty. By the way, she thinks “dome” is hysterical, and came up with “self dome” which takes a lot of yoga, but it may be all you’ve got if house chores remain “women’s work.” Had a rather messy morning with the waffles, by the way. Thanks for putting that idea in her head. If she says we’re having fondue for dinner, I’m running.
