Moving In with Frank

A hundred men may make an encampment,
but it takes a woman to make a home.

~Chinese Proverb

Although a bright and able man, my husband is almost completely helpless when faced with even the simplest domestic chore. One day, in exasperation, I pointed out to him that our friend, Beaa, had taught her husband, Frank, to cook, sew and do laundry, and that if anything ever happened to Beaa, Frank would be able to care for himself. Then I said, “What would you do if anything happened to me?”

After considering that possibility for a moment, my husband said happily, “I’d move in with Frank.”
