This is a typical day in the life of the Bearman household. My wife can do twenty things around the house and never say a word about it. I, on the other hand, like to boast or at least announce every menial task that I do. “Just want to let you know I changed the light bulbs in the bathroom and you didn’t even have to ask” Now just for reference this isn’t some typical screw job bulb. They are the damn halogen mini lights so I actually have to climb up on the counter to my own peril, hope they don’t explode in my face, make sure the pins align correctly, and all in the dark so I don’t blind or burn myself. uh…am I bragging again?
Now my female readers might look at this and say, “typical man.” BUT, I would say it is a learned response when you get married. It is a preemptive strike. Women think they do everything around the house. So they start piling on chores for the man trying to get him to do their share. By bragging about how much we have done no matter how mundane, we make you think before you start requesting things get done.
Though my wife has even worked her way around that. Some show was saying that women shouldn’t nag their husbands to do chores but rather speak positively about the things they do in order to encourage them to do it more. So now once a week without fail, my wife will tell me “You know you look sexy when you clean the cat litter”
