The Keeper of the List

My husband that recently found himself out of work has obviously too much time on his hands as he announces "Hon, you really need a printer for your lists".
And lists is exactly what he tells the Costco staff when asked what we intend to primarily use the printer for. We? Yes, it appears that list making has now become a shared activity.

"I made a list" is the greeting I received after a long day at work. My husband never seems to hear me when I remind him to prune the wisteria else it swallow up the woman that lives upstairs(though in his defence it has been a lot quieter this last month), but before me, lay the mother of all lists. Categorized by fiber type it also includes columns for micron count, lustre and a thousand other attributes falling just short of the weekend relief shepherd's name!
Stunned, I immediately promote him to Keeper of the List!

As an aside, I work in the Mental Health field and this list situation brings to mind a condition called Folie  à Deux

Shared psychotic disorder, or folie à deux, is a rare delusional disorder shared by 2 or, occasionally, more people with close emotional ties. An extensive review of the literature reveals cases of folie à trois, folie à quatre, folie à famille (all family members), and even a case involving a dog. medscape

Hmmmm....Now may be a good time to introduce my fiber flock
