Nathan, notices flies buzzing around: "Hm. I think it's about time to put up some flystrips."
Me, glancing at kitchen door wide open to let in fresh air and glorious sunshine: "Hm. Yeah. And some screen doors."
N: "Okay. Look, I'll put up one screen door if you will take care of the flystrips for the summer."
M: "Hey! No fair! You put up both screen doors, and I'll take care of the fly strips."
N: "Two screen doors for flystrips? That's not very even!"
M: "Sure! It's like a half-hour of work for you, but I have to do flystrips for the whole summer!"
N: "Yeah, that's like ten seconds of work at a time!"
M: "But I have to remember them all summer. I have to think of it. Not that easy. I have a lot in my head you know."
N, pauses, considers tasteless remark, wisely reconsiders: "Fine. I'll put them up. But you had better keep up on those flystrips!"
M: "Yeah, yeah. Hey, what, are we one of those "modern" marriages now? Where we divvy up all the work so that it's exactly even?"
N: "Oh, yeah, right. That's it."
M: "Okay. I will... do the dishes if you will... let me sweep the floor."
N: "Ha. Sounds great."
M: "And YOU can... mow the lawn and I will... let you till the garden."
N: "Har, har. You think you're SOOO funny..."
