While doling out who would be doing what for today's house cleaning project, my wife Tara assigned the following to me: Strip and make the bed. Knowing me, she then felt the need to clarify. "That means strip the bed." I'll just let that sink in for those who don't immediately get it.
During the chores, she told Elizabeth she could take 15 minute breaks now and then. I think Elizabeth was confused, though, because she took a break every 15 minutes, not just every once in a while.
And now they've gone to a cousin's birthday party north of town, leaving me to fend for myself in the coming "severe" weather. I think I'll be OK. :)
