month of modern 2016
On October 27th we all got dressed up in our mid-mod finest and headed over to BMoCA for the Month of Modern 2016 Wrap Party. Here are Chelsea and Melissa making a selection from the cigarette girl box. Photo by Poppies & Paisley. You can see a bunch more great photos here.
As part of the entertainment for the night, I was asked to make people smile with a humorous presentation about mid-mod life. Using good old Google to do 21st century research about mid 20th century life, I stumbled across an article about a very interesting body of “research” by Dr. George Crane III. The article makes fun of the 100 point rating scale for husbands and wives, but looking through it, I realized that I am a BAD wife and Joseph is a GOOD husband, so I decided to make a public declaration. For your critical review, here is my presentation:

BAD wife / GOOD husband
You can go an take an on-line version of this test and post it directly to your Facebook. I encourage you to do it right now!
what makes me a BAD wife
I don’t mean to do it, but I often don’t start my evening beauty routine until after Joseph has turned off the lights.
If you can’t warm your feet up on your husband, who can you warm your feet up on?
According to a recent study, people who curse are smarter than those who don’t.
Hey ladies, let’s go out!
Take me out for a cocktail or two and I’ll tell you some stories.
Well, I don’t use “dope,” or smoke, or gamble, but, hey, let’s go out for a drink (did I already suggest that?).
I prefer breakfast to be prepared FOR me rather than BY me. I mean, I have to sleep in after all that drinking and flirting.
what makes Joseph a GOOD husband
He better, I do own 51% after all.
Direct deposit into a joint account, that’s what I’m talking about.
This is exactly what happens at my house. I put on an apron and cook delicious foods, and Joseph reads to me from the newspaper.
Sometimes I have to remind him, but he does a pretty good job on his own.
As I mentioned before, I prefer breakfast made FOR me, not BY me.
Never goes over the speed limit that one.
Seriously, the man does not mind shopping.

And this is why we are still together after 24 years! Thanks babe. I love you too. <3
THANKS FOR READING
I hope you had a great Thanksgiving!
Yesterday, November 27th, Joseph and I celebrated the 24th anniversary of our first date and our 17th wedding anniversary.
