We have a rule at our house: You can sleep as late as you want, but the last one out of bed has to make it. Here’s how the bed looks when I make it:
Here’s how the bed looks when Dave makes it:
Dave gets snarky if I comment on his bed-making technique. He always says the bed is FINE. It’s like a chimpanzee made the bed. Every day, we have a discussion very much like the one below (btw…this discussion is from Monday):
Dave: HEY! What are you doing?
Libby: I’m remaking the bed.
Dave: What’s wrong with it?
Libby: It looks like it was made by a chimpanzee. We don’t live in a zoo, you know.
Dave: SEE? This is EXACTLY why I hate making the bed. You always re-do it. It was perfectly FINE, and now you’re re-making it.
Libby: I think you do a bad job on purpose, so you can get out of making the bed.
Dave: That’s a LIE. [I swear I detected a sardonical little laugh in this, but Dave claims he was merely clearing his throat].
