You want to know how to get your husband to clean the house? Here’s how…

1. Put your house on the market.

2. Lovingly let him sleep in until 10:00am on a Sunday.

3. Awake him and tell him you need just a half hour of sleep before you go house-hunting. You are so tired.

4. Call him from the bedroom, impersonating a real estate agent who has highly motivated buyers who need to see the house in 20 minutes.

5. Slip into a deep, blissful slumber.

{Damn Caller-ID. I was so close.}
