Sex and dirty dishes


Jana offers the following assessment:
You know, I wouldn't say you
doing the dishes for me
is better than sex...but it's close.


I laugh and laugh.
I understand, I say,
You know,
I bet if we called all your friends tonight
and asked them the question,
'Would you rather have sex
with your husband tonight
or have him wash the dishes?'
that 100% would say
'Wash the dishes.'

She agrees.

But I have a crazy idea.
Let's put this to the test! I say,
Let's call your friends and pose the question.

So Jana starts making calls.
Asking wife after wife the question:
If you could have sex with your husband tonight
or have him do the dishes
what would you choose?

The results rolled in.
Like election night.
And the verdict?
100%

Do the dishes.
