-- hypothetically speaking, that is

I'm standing here in the bedroom trying on hand-me-downs from my sis when Dan yells up the stairs.
him: "Hey! What would happen if I gave the dog a bath?"

me: "You mean right now?"

him: "Yeah."

me: "um, it would mean he would be clean?"

I know what Dan's getting at though. Bathing our 65lb spaz (and I mean that in the most affectionate way possible) is an enormous undertaking normally suitable for two+ persons, especially as the bathroom requires a complete 1-hour scrubdown afterwards. His "what do you think would happen" question was code for "if I bathe him, will you clean up?"

This is what sharing domestic chores does; you learn to read between the lines....

Hahaha... nick is the king of these types of comments.

Do we gave a game plan for dinner = what are you making and when is that happening
Damn this place is messy = you should really be cleaning right now

The cats look hungry... you get the idea.

Ahhhh, the joys of cohabitation. :)
