I don’t know how the other husbands react, but my bright boy realized that forces had to be pressed into action to gain control of the situation.
So my bright boy came up with a plan. It was a simple plan.
The bright boy knew that women are, at heart, soft. They melt. They melt at endearing little combinations of tousled hair, goofy expressions and…….lovingly prepared breakfasts on Sundays!
And therein started the ‘Sunday breakfast by hubby’ ritual at home.
This ritual has been followed religiously for almost 7 years now; atleast whenever breakfast is at home. It has led to wife being very lovingly proud of husband, women friends being extremely jealous of wife and women friends’ husbands ready to box hubby’s ears!! And hubby getting away with leaving wet towels on the bed.
It is another matter that the state of the kitchen post all the breakfast making sometimes made the wife feel that perhaps she would be better off stopping all this show of love and culinary skills…..but…… what the heck! It’s just too endearing.
