Primo: You'll really polish my shoes?
Me: Sure. Why not? I’m doing mine. Bring yours over. Once my hands are dirty with the polish, I might as well keep going.
Primo: In my house, that was always my dad's job.
Me: Funny. At my house, that was always my job.
Primo: But that's men's work.
Me: There was no such thing as men's work or women's work at our house.
Primo: Well, it was never specifically said, but it was just understood.
Me: Nope. The chores were rotated at our house. We took turns doing dishes, mowing the grass, taking out the trash, cleaning the bathroom.
Primo: Not at our house.
Me: Isn't it funny that the intellectual, enlightened, superior liberals are the ones who had the men's and women's work and the backwards religious rigid military conservatives are the ones who had non-gendered work?
