Life is full of mysteries that leave us wondering and scratching our heads. Lice can also do this. But if you have a question about life, or even about lice, this is your chance to ask it. Just shoot me an email, at TippyGnu [at] gmx.com. Or, if you don’t feel like shooting me, you can ask the question in a comment.
Today’s question comes from a renowned Pullyerleg Prize author, who has asked to remain anonymous. So I’ll just call her Cara. The oeuvre of her written works can be appreciated at Nuggets of Gold.
Cara’s husband, Bard, works very long hours, and comes home every day, deadbeat tired. But as soon as he stumbles through the front door, his wife (Cara) hands him a very long To-Do List. So he wearily busies himself performing all the tasks she’s given him, between cooking his own dinner and doing his laundry. Finally bedtime comes, and if poor Bard has accomplished all his chores, he’s allowed to get some rest.
Cara feels amazed at how quickly poor Bard succumbs to sleep. He starts snoring just at the time her energy reaches its peak and she wants to go out and do stuff, and have fun. It’s frustrating. Cara has no idea why her poor husband falls asleep so quickly, while the night is still young.
Just remember, there are no stupid questions. So here’s Cara’s: Do men have a magic pillow that enables them to fall asleep as soon as their head hits it??
