The holiday season is upon us: December is in sight. At this early stage, requests to find out “What do you want for Christmas?” are a pain. People want an answer NOW and gifts for me aren’t on my mind yet.
That said, I can honestly say that if Christmas is a time of magic, I know what I want.
I want a wife.
I’ll bet you thought a NotMom might use a magical wish to get a child. Some might. At this point, I want a wife.
Depending on the household, a wife keeps things tidy (a “clean” house is a relative term), organized and eating enough food to stay alive, if not totally healthy. A wife pays the bills, schedules events, stocks the medicine cabinet and oversees the purchase of groceries, gifts and maintenance services. A wife may get you going in the spiritual practice or regular exercise you said you wanted but never took action on. A wife gives hugs when you need them.
A good wife is the best personal assistant ever, and I want one.
