The Honey Do List

“What’s this?” Frank asked his wife when she handed him the piece of paper.

“It’s my honey do list, sweetie,” Debbie said.

“Look at the size of this freakin’ list, Debbie,” Frank said. “I’ll be encumbered for the rest of my life trying to get through all of the tasks on this list of yours.”

“Oh honey, it should be a piece of cake for a resourceful man like you,” Debbie said.

“Well, thank you for this nifty little list of yours that will keep me occupied for years while you sit around on your fat ass buying crap on the Home Shopping Network,” Frank grumbled.

“Oh stop being such a gnarly old fuddy-duddy,” Debbie said. “You need to learn to relax and to just go with the flow, Frank.”

“Being married to you requires the patience of a saint,” Frank said.

“But Frank, I’m such an angel to you, don’t you think, sweetheart?” Debbie said.

Frank looked at his wife and then down at the list that he was holding. “What I think, Debbie, is better left unsaid.”
