So, my wife tells me most people do the dishes every day. I don't believe her. "Every day?" I ask.
"Yes, every day," she says.
"Every single day?" I persist. She nods. "You don't mean," I search for clarification, "it's something that is an 'every day' thing, but in reality is not done literally every single day, do you?"
"No," she insists. "What I'm saying is that most people, or at least someone in the house, probably a woman, does the dishes, literally, every single day ... unless they're on vacation or something."
"Wow," is all I can say. "I just find that hard to believe."
"Are you calling me a liar?" she asks.
"Oh, no, definitely not," I assure her. "I'm sure you're as honest as ... the next wife."
"You'll be looking for your next wife if you keep this up!"
