Turn Your Honey-Do's Into Honey-Did's in 5 Minutes a Week

Posted on

This post has stuff about a previous relationship. My perspective has changed

We all have our regular chores like mowing the lawn, taking out the trash, feeding the dog, and returning voicemail but there are some less regular chores that have become the bane of most every man’s existence and the source of many a complaint by their wives. I’m talking about honey do’s (queue the scary music), and I intend on getting mine done albeit very slowly.

I found out today that my wife has had a “super sekrit” list of man-chores posted on the inside of our cookbook cabinet. It has 29 items on it. I never even knew it was there! I don’t have to tell you that I am not looking forward to completing this thing. I mean, it looks downright daunting:

  1. Finish painting the kid’s room
  2. Replace the guest bedroom door
  3. Defeat foes—this one actually looks fun
  4. Crush enemies—also very cool
  5. Steam clean living room and master bedroom
  6. And so on…

Apart from number 3 and 4, that list sucks. So, being the superhero that I am, I devised a simple solution that involves cloning and time travel I thought it would be a good idea to try and do at least one of these puppies each week. Ah but how could my misery go unblogged? In an attempt to motivate you to do my weekly man-chore I’m going to try out a new segment. We’re talking super-motivational, five-minute chores that will make your wife want to head to the bedroom.

To the man-chore!

This week we’re starting with the lightbulbs. Everyone loves to see things. Look, without light bulbs you can’t see your wife’s beautiful goods—how’s that for motivational! Ahem. You’ve got two burnt out bulbs in the kitchen, one in the hallway, and one in the bedroom. Replace them now. If you don’t have the right bulbs, your honey-did is to go to the store and get them. You can wait to change the bulbs until sometime later. Ready? Go.
