Sometimes, I don't know why women get married. Most of the things a husband does in a marriage can be accomplished by a toaster.
A toaster would be a great stand-in for a husband in the evening. After work, all I would have to do is plop the toaster in front of my husband's computer. Add a pair of headphones...voila....a husband.
Having a conversation with a toaster is the same as having one with a husband.
"Hey toaster, can you take a break from your computer to tell me how I look in this dress."
Also, when I have a really bad or interesting day at work, I can come home and tell my toaster. It's basically just like telling a husband. Our conversations involve the same level of empathy and emotional intelligence.
"Toaster, my day was really hard today. The boys screamed the whole way to my mom's. I had this really long meeting and then I had to write a 20 page brief."
"Oh...and I may have scratched your car...just a little."
Raised eyebrows? Is that a hint of emotion?
