Jagger and I seem to be watching a lot of polygamist TV lately. It started with TLC's Sister Wives (which is fascinating) then that of course made us want to start watching Big Love. So, we've been spending a lot of time watching these shows and pondering the polygamist life. Which of course leads to wonderful conversations like this -
Jagger - "Do you think you would ever want to take another husband?"
Me - "Hell no. What on earth would I want with another husband? You're more than enough, dear."
J - "But then you could have a husband who's handy."
M - Suddenly taking a keen interest in this conversation. "A handy husband? Hmm...there's a thought."
J - "And I could be your...um...I don't know, I guess I'm a pretty useless husband."
M - "Well..."
J - "Don't worry though, I wouldn't ever be able to handle more than one wife."
M - "Yes, dear. I know. I'm not worried."
Ah hypothetical conversations. While I don't agree with polygamy, the idea of having a husband who is handy, one who cooks, and one who makes lots of money does sound pretty nice. But only if I don't have to live with them all.
