As a 1930s wife, I am
Sara over at Much Ado About Something posted the above test on her blog.
After seeing her results I knew I wanted to take the test too.
As a Home Economist, I felt duty bound to not only take the test but to ace the homemaking part of it as well.
As a wife of 32 years, I was sure I could rock the wifey part too. Even though my speciality is being a 1910's wife. (See this post for inspiration about homemaking in that decade, just after the story about the raccoons. Having the Raccoons for dinner: all in a day's work for a Superior wife...)
And I'm a pretty good 1950's wife (Cocktails anyone? Jello mold?)
And of course I excelled at being a 1980's wife. Recession memories, pinching a dime, squeezing a nickle...ah, those were the days. Good practice for being a 2008 wife.
Well, I came close to getting an "A" on the test.
But what the heck, it is has been thirty two years since I graduated with a Home Ec. degree, and thirty one years of modern wifehood has made me a bit sloppy I guess.
(I'm sort of wondering about the pajamas vs. nightgown test question though. And also wonder how many people nowadays understand what "marital congress" means. Hint: You don't have to decide what side of the aisle you are on for voting purposes!)
Back to being a 2008 wife. Think green, recycle everything, think twice before running an errand in the SUV, and remember to think fiber when planning meals.
