In order to ensure domestic tranquility...don't do this.

When I got home from errands today, prettypammie took a moment to have a heart-to-heart with me. You see, she explained, it really perturbed her when I take something out and don't put it away--or put some of it away, but overall leave things more cluttered than they were when I started. She suggested that I do my best to set an example of de-cluttering for our son. She explained that she didn't want to model men cluttering and women cleaning up. While she was making her point, I was busy unpacking "her" present [more on that later] at the dining room table. Nodding my head, I made noises of agreement. She was, of course, absolutely right and all that.

As we wrapped up our little talk, I was unwrapping a last couple of parts from their individual plastic bags. I made one last noise of concurrence as I handed her the crumpled, empty bags. Having thoroughly made her point, she turned around and headed off towards the garbage can with the bags; I turned back to figuring out the new gadget.

Moments later, I found myself being chased around the dining room table by an extremely upset-sounding woman, promising painful revenge, and brandishing what appeared to be a handful of discarded plastic bags.
