The New York Times stole my joke!

I have said this before, on many occasions:

“The thing I most want in life is a wife. I’m not kidding,” said Joyce Lustbader, a research scientist at Columbia University, who has been married for 29 years. “I work all day, sometimes seven days a week, and still have to go home and make dinner and have all those things to do around the house.”

(Thanks, Dan.)

I am going to leave this up to you and Steve, but if you guys want to work out some sort of arrangement, that is fine with me. Do you think we could arrange two home cooked meals, however?

I've been feeling this way lately myself. I'm thisclose to making the jump and hiring a cleaning service, but I have to get over the fact that someone might interfere with my household organizational system of intricate piles.

Caroline: I don't think we should share a wife anymore. Steve's all yours.

Tingb: I hired a cleaning lady. She comes every other week, and it's great. The problem is that she doesn't cook me dinner during the week (and wash the dishes afterwards), doesn't do my laundry, doesn't pick up my dry cleaning, and doesn't go through my mail and pay my bills. But at least someone's cleaning my kitchen and bathroom.

Don't take this the wrong way, but I have a wife. A housekeeper would be a lot cheaper.
