When my husband, Olof, asked me what I wanted for my birthday, I didn’t hesitate to request a top-of-the-line sewer auger.
“And what happened?” he continued.
“Exactly. It is against the Code of Husbands to get a wife a sewer auger for her birthday,” he maintained.
“OK,” said Olof, “I’m willing to buy you the sewer auger of your dreams but you can’t have it within even two months of your birthday. So you’re going to have to think of something else.”
“I also really want a hose caddy.” I suggested. “The kind that’s mounted on the house that I can just crank up. The hose on the patio is making me crazy.”
