The other evening, with a nearly-empty glass of gin in hand, Peter told me that I am the perfect wife. Since I know that that is not true, I asked him what makes a wife perfect.
- She keeps you from eating things that are bad for you, like Italian sausages.
- She shames you into exercising by setting a good example.
- She tolerates your imperfections.
- She tells you when your fly is unzipped.
- She loves you in spite of everything.
Fortunately he didn’t ask me what makes a perfect husband.
