Get A Load Of THIS

These are from a page of Good HouseKeeping from May 1955. My hubby underlined his favourite parts and I just had to share. It's a full page but I narrowed it down to my Top 10. These are the parts that sent me through the roof, but in a good way.... sorta. For sure the funniest thing I've read all week.

Brace yourselves.

The Good Wife's Guide

  1. Prepare yourself. Take 15 minutes to rest so you'll be refreshed when he arrives. Touch up your make-up, put a ribbon in your hair and be fresh looking.
  2. Be a little gay and a little more interesting for him.
  3. Catering for his comfort will provide you with immense personal satisfaction.
  4. At the time of his arrival, eliminate all noise of the washer, dryer or vacuum. Try to encourage the children to be quiet.
  5. Greet him with a warm smile and show sincerity in your desire to please him.
  6. Listen to him. You may have a dozen things to tell him but the moment of his arrival is not the time. Let him talk first - remember, his topics of conversation are more important than yours.
  7. Never complain if he comes home late or goes out to dinner, or even if he stays out all night. Count this as minor compared to what might of went through that day.
  8. Have a cool or warm drink ready for him.
  9. Arrange his pillow and offer to take off his shoes. Speak in a low, soothing and pleasant voice.
  10. Don't ask him questions about his action or question his judgment. Remember, he is the master of the house and as such will always exercise his will with fairness and truthfulness. You have no right to question him.

As if!!! Look how far we've come ladies. I know you guys out there are going "Holy crap, that's more like it". Well sorry fellas.

I am posting this on my fridge just so he can dream of what could of been.

Nnnnnnnnnno. I'm one of "you guys" and I think that's just plain wrong... like that Islamic law that allows the man of the house to "terminate" his wife or kids (especially the girls) should he feel like it.

We were not far, but we came a long way!
