But according to a story in The New York Times this week, it is not enough to eat right and engage in regular exercise: Marital Spats, Taken to Heart
Recent studies, documented in the July report of Psychosomatic Medicine, suggest that women who don't fully vent their feelings when arguing with their husbands are "four times as likely" to die of heart disease as women who "always" tell their husbands how they feel.
So I'm just going to come out and say it:
1. Home-improvement prowess doesn't exempt you from having to put your dirty clothes into the laundry basket.
2. If you are so much smarter than a raccoon, how come you are the only one in the family who hasn't had to pick garbage off the lawn at 6 a.m.? Wait... don't answer that.
3. Your observation that Dennis Kucinich's wife is a hot young redhead with a tongue piercing is not exactly astute political analysis. Observing it repeatedly is not exactly astute marital commentary either.
There. I think I will skip the StairMaster today.
