What's that? Oh, you want to know about the whole "fake injury" thing. Well, alright...but you can't tell DH. This was early on in our marriage, and I've always been known for my clumsiness. When DH came home after being away for a week and the house looked exactly the same as when he left, I knew he'd be pretty peeved. I quickly threw myself onto the couch and dragged a blanket over my legs. I put on a suitable expression of noble suffering, of course. When asked, I told him a whopper of a lie about slipping on ice in the kitchen. This really wasn't fair, as I actually had twisted my ankle earlier in the week, so at least I looked injured, but I'd been walking on it just fine for the last three days. Still, the site looked suitably bruised and swollen enough for my trickery to be plausible. All loving concern, DH certainly made no complaints about my housekeeping. Of course, these things tend to backfire, because I was coddled and hobbled for the next couple of days, while the house fell further and further into what I'd have to call a god-awful mess. DH just isn't the kind of guy to do the cleaning for me. Nope - he just left it 'till I was "able" to do it myself. Ah, well. I never tried that one again.
These days I still don't enjoy cleaning, and I especially hate my huge, clunky upright vacuum. It's outrageously heavy, and like most appliances, it's a total energy suck. (Mine and B.G.E.'s)
