Nothing wrong with your hands

Knitgeek: Yes, apparently when I say 'Nothin' wrong with your hands. Why can't you pick up your socks?' I'm contributing to the emasculation of my husband and indeed men everywhere.

I confess the conversation left me baffled. The Viking was as baffled as I when I described it to him; he assures me that he doesn't feel castrated, psychologically or otherwise, when I ask him to pitch in with housework. Which is a good thing, because there ain't nothin' wrong with his hands that he can't pick up his own socks.

Meanstwhile the world spins on. Back to work.
