Superior Housewife?

This cracked me up... Check out some of the items on this funny survey that I found at Baby Tunnel Exodus.

Do you, as a housewife...
Fail to wash top of milk bottle before opening it- uhhhhhh?

Fail to sew on buttons or darn socks regularly- big time failure

Give husband shampoo or manicure- are they serious? Did housewives really do this in the 30's?

Go to bed with curlers on your hair or much face cream- all the time, love me some sponge rollers

Greet husband at night with a smile- depends on TOA (time of arrival)

Have a pleasant disposition in the morning--not crabby- after 3 cups of coffee and some Jesus time

Keep hair neatly combed or shampooed and waved- combed and waved, yes, shampooed- eh.

Keep husband's clothes clean and pressed- by "press," do they mean crammed in drawer?

Seams in hose often crooked- it's tough getting those fishnet stockings straight!

Wear soiled or ragged dresses and aprons around the house- for sure, and pj's until 4:30 pm

How did I score?


As a 1930s wife, I am

Take the test!

Soooooooo... How do you rate as a 1930's housewife? Go take the test yourself, post it in your blog and link back to me using Mr. Linky (remember to link to that specific post)

Kristen said...

That was fun! But can I tell you that I might be slightly afraid of what I might score. It might be really really really low! :)

I did this a while ago but I added my post to Mr Linky all the same.

I have come to the conclusion that in the 30's I would've made a spectacularly happy spinster. Married life sounds awful.

100 questions? Ok, I'll have to come back and do it later....dinner wifely duties call.

SOOOOO funny! Oh and by 'pressed' they totally meant crammed in a drawer...totally!

Very funny! I went and did the little test. I am shocked! I thought I was far more progressive than I turned out to be. Really, I'm embarrassed to share my score. I did think that the "keeps self dainty, perfumed, and feminine" was funny as well as the "warms cold feet on husband in bed" was hilarious. I totally do that! The cold feet, not the dainty and perfumed. I think most of the time I smell like spit up.

Chelle said...

Ha! That's funny!! You did way better than I did. I did this one awhile ago online and got low. Oh so low.
You are a great housewife!

hi.. I just discovered your blog. I took the test totally failed. I think it's a little funny. I wont have done very good in the 1+30s apparently thanks for sharing it.

I did this some time back--I had a scary high score--more than likely because I always seem to be cooking and fixing stuff ;)

I did this a while ago, and got a high score, too. Obviously, the scoring system must be broken.

Are you flippin' kidding me???

I already know my score: Miserable Failure
