The “Honey-Do” List isn’t very sweet and I think that is hurting our sport of hunting. Let me tell you my theory on what it is and how it got started: I beleive, buried deep in the fine print of every wedding vow is a clause that legally enables the creation of what is commonly known as the “Honey-Do” list. The “Honey-Do” list is a compilation of tasks, chores, repairs, and improvements that wives would like their husbands to accomplish, usually on the weekend or his hunting vacation.
It usually germinates from a single, innocent request placed upon the husband early in the marriage, which, in his desire to please his new bride, he nobly accepts as his duty. The problem is that once started, the “Honey-Do” list cannot be killed, and from that initial tiny mustard seed of a request will sprout a monster as thorny and unstoppable as an over-fertilized barbed wire bush.
The list will not go away, but can be controlled, here are three tips: *Get the list early and say “Is this all?” this usually stuns the growth of the list.
* Try to do things before your vacation or the weekend, and tell your wife about it.
*Buy your wife a small gift like flowers, this might help, in more ways than one!
*DO NOT! I repeat DO NOT!! Leave the list until the end of your days of relaxation. This thing will grow faster than dandelions in May!
I hope this can help my fellow man on his quest to enable him to hunt and relax for at least a couple of days, thanks for the observation and pass those taters!
