BOOK EXCERPT:

Trash Talk*
(Women Are Not Allowed To Read This)

OK, now that it’s just us guys, let’s get down to business. You are a newly married man. While this is a great thing in many regards, you’ve quickly learned that your bachelor ways are Downright Wrong.

Living with your new bride is not the same as rooming with Al and Pigpen. In fact, every rule of communication, time management, and cleanliness is currently undergoing a Drastic Overhaul. Tearing up a little? It’s OK. We’ll handle these one at a time. Today’s topic: garbage.

At some point after the honeymoon (usually Day #2), your wife addressed the Division of Household Responsibilities. One of yours is taking out the trash. Why are you responsible for the garbage? Because it’s in your genes, just like it’s in your wife’s genes to decorate the house with tiny books entitled Friendship Is Forever, Precious Puppies, and Fuzzy Things That Squeak. (Side Note: At some point, you will be tempted to place one of these books beneath the short leg of the kitchen table. But unless you enjoy indoor cold fronts, leave the books alone.)
