I hope he is packing his wrench.

by Regis Boff

One parent cannot successfully raise children unless that parent forgoes the ownership of major appliances. A working parent can, of course, love their child, and receive love in return, but there is no way to juggle the regular necessity of remaining at home all day waiting for a repairman to arrive. I understand perfectly why 78% of the women of my mother’s generation had sex with plumbers. The level of tearful gratitude that is reached when they do arrive is very arousing. I am waiting for my dishwasher guy to show up. I hope he is packing his wrench.
