How to be the Perfect Wife
Well, friends of My Life and Kids, it’s that time of the month again!
Wait, no. That came out wrong.
What I meant to say is that it’s me again, Katy in a Corner. And I’m here with a very timely video that is a slice of my everyday life as a perfect wife.
It’s basically what would happen if I starred in my own reality TV show: The Real Housewife of Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.
It’s a one-woman show in case you’re curious. No one else wants to be seen on camera with me. I already asked.
I say this video is timely because my husband was pulled over for speeding in our minivan on Labor Day weekend for the third time in a handful of months. And, though I nearly blew a gasket, I kept my perfect tongue perfectly tame the entire time.
Not a WORD of frustration crossed my lips. Not an “I TOLD YOU to slow down!” or an “Are you KIDDING me?” or any other type of exasperated response.
No, I took the high road and sat quietly in the passenger seat. My lips sealed, relaxed and without pursing. My hands neatly folded in my lap and not clenched in anger. My sunglasses perfectly positioned to conceal my eyes, which rolled so far back in my head they still haven’t made their way back around again.
I already have plans for How to be the Perfect Wife: Highway Patrol Edition.
