And A New Career Opportunity Opens Up

Today, Mavis decided to bag Joab's clothes - specifically that he was wearing a shirt that wasn't ironed. Well, she bagged several of his clothes (and Kal and I joined in), but the shirt came under special attention.

"It makes you look like a grub," Mavis said.

"I AM a grub," Joab said.

"Please, just iron your shirts!"

"But then I would have to iron them."

I pointed out that there was a very simple solution to this problem. "Take a look around at all the pretty girls at church, choose one, marry her, and then make her do your ironing."

Joab was not convinced. "I could just pay Sam to do it for me. How much would you charge?"

"$20 a hour."

"Seems reasonable. I shall consider it."

I personally think he should go for the wife. It's probably cheaper in the long term, and she'll even do the cooking and the cleaning.

Correction: Sam joined in but Kallie did not (Kallie can't bag his unironed clothes because that would be hypocritical of her...)

Kallie will compete with Joab for girls who can iron.

Kallie not need to compete, Kallie LIVES with Sam. And because you are so awesome, Sam might even be induced to do ironing for the low low price of dinner.
