Calling Rent-a-Husband


Sometimes a husband can come in real handy

Yesterday, it occurred to me that this whole "being single works for me" stance may be a little overrated.  Most of the time I got no complaints.

Me:  Honey, there are ceiling lightbulbs that are burned out in every room. They need to be replaced.

Imaginary Hubby:  Yes, Dear. I'll get on it right away.

Imaginary Hubby:  Babe, all done!

Me: Thanks, Sweetie. You're the best!
