The obvious and fair solution to the housework problem is to let men do the housework for, say, the next six thousand years to even things up. The trouble is that men, over the years, have developed an inflated notion of the importance of everything they do, so that before long they would turn housework into just as much of a charade as business is now. They would hire secretaries and buy computers and fly off to housework conferences in Bermuda, but they'd never clean anything.
There is no daily chore so trivial that it cannot be made
important by skipping it two days running.
