To welcome Janel home yesterday evening from her night away with the ladies, instead of cleaning the house top to bottom, I decided to give her a lake... in our bedroom.
That's right, it's not enough that we have a sliver of a view of Lake Victoria from our backyard. Why should we have to leave the house? So I promptly left the bathroom water running flooding the bathroom and bedroom.
I suppose there are really positive things about living in concrete houses, like being able to just squeegee the water down the hallway and out the front door. Two hours later I can say we had a good time working through our stress and into laughter--a good marital exercise. But it may not be for everyone. Perhaps you should renew your homeowners' insurance first.
