So early in the weekend my wife said to me, “Hey honey can you go find the Christmas tree in the basement and bring it up for me, I’d like to set it up today”..
What that really means, loosely translated is, will you set it up for me because you know simple delivery of the box from the basement won’t do the job.
I haul the box up from the basement for her and leave to take my son to his hockey game.
When I return a couple of hours later only the stem is erected and the lower level of branches, the rest is in the box as if it’s never been touched.
What happened to the tree I asked?
“Oh honey I couldn’t figure it out, you’re more mechanically inclined than me, can you throw it together?”
Certainly honey, I said, would you like me to do that before or after I put up the outdoor lights, clean the fish tank, put out the trash, hang your pictures, clean the furnace filters, and put on your snow tires?
Her head tilted like a golden retriever who just had its named called.
Just another reason why guys ‘LOVE’ Christmas.
For us, it’s just an ongoing seasonal ‘honey do’ list, except way more expensive.
