He Said, She Said: A Sister Wife

hsss3a

Setting the Scene: We are into week 2 of summer break and it’s been awesome. Matt’s been working long hours at work for the past few weeks so he’s usually gone before anyone else wakes up (except Tyler because he leaves at 7am for football) and he’s not been getting home until after 7. The following conversation took place one evening last week when he didn’t get home until almost 8pm.

He Said: So how’s summer break going?

She Said: Good. But I could use some help.

He Said: Help? Help with what?

She Said: Cleaning, cooking, laundry, driving your kids around.

He Said: So you need a cleaning service, laundry service, a chef, and a chauffeur?

She Said: Yes.

He Said: Too bad we haven’t hit the lotto yet. 

She Said: I’d settle for a sister wife.

He Said: A what?

She Said: You know, a sister wife. Someone to do all the boring crap that I don’t want to do.

He Said: And what would you do if she did all that?

She Said: Lounge by the pool, read in the hot tub, take naps.

He Said: Ahhhhhh. You want to be a trophy wife. 

She Said: Yes. Yes please. That’s exactly what I want to be.

He Said: Can I pick the sister wife?

She Said: No.

He Said: Well that seems unfair.

She Said: This isn’t about you. It’s my sister wife.

He Said: I’m not sure that’s how it works.

She Said: Well that’s how it works in this house.

The End.

    A sister wife would be so helpful. At least to split the work – you don’t want her doing all the work, getting angry and then killing you in your sleep. You have split the workload. But even doing half as much would be helpful.
