From an actual conversation between Isaiah and me:
Me: You guys are going to have some really great stories for your own kids when you're older. A lot of "when your dad and I were kids, boy..."
Except your stories will all be for your nieces and nephews, since I know you aren't planning to get married. (When Isaiah was about 4 he declared he was not going to be a dad when he grew up. He would be an uncle, because uncles have money and dads never do...)
Isaiah: inaudible shoulder shrug
Me: Who is going to cook for you and do your laundry?
Isaiah: I know how to do all that.
Me: I know--but if you had a wife, she'd have to do it. (a little tongue-in-cheek, lest you think me totally oppressed)
Isaiah: I'd hire a servant.
Me: But you'd have to PAY a servant--a wife does all that stuff for FREE!
Isaiah: Yeah, but I'd have to feed her.
I guess I couldn't argue with that...
