the perfect husband/the perfect wife

Two illustrative scenarios:

10:49pm, the man and woman have just finished making love
she: Love you sweetie. 'Gnight."
he: Hey wait! You're going to sleep already? What about me?
she:I'ts almost 11. I'm really tired. What do you want me to do?
he: Put your head on my chest and tell me I'm great.
she:You ARE great. Really great. I'm just tired.

9:17am, just before cycle class (the women are talking about their husbands)
wife #1: My husband is willing to help around the house. He just has no idea what to do.
wife #2: My husband eats an apple every morning and leaves the little fruit identification sticker on the counter beside the sink.
wife #1: Well, at least you know where he's been and that he's eating his fruit.
wife #2: Yeah, he's a good husband. But if he'd just put that sticker in the trash he'd be PERFECT.

question: I wonder, is that all it takes for us to go from good to perfect?

Ha! :) Don't know if I'm a perfect husband or not, but I'm never going to ask!
