Perfect Wife

I can put dinner on the table--
not just food. Dinner:
hot, colorful, food pyramid-approved.
While you eat, your laundry sits on your (freshly made) bed--
washed, dried, folded, ironed.

I can clean a bathroom, change a light bulb, program a TV remote
--but that's nothing compared to how I
replace a water filter cartridge, rewire a closet light, or plant a garden.

I will decorate a Christmas tree,
hand out Halloween candy,
hide Easter eggs,
wrap birthday gifts,
buy Valentine's Day chocolate,
and return any/all of these items when
you decide you changed your mind...
so you don't have to.

You just worry about winning the bread;
I'll worry about baking it.
