Mother’s Day empathy 

      Gail White wrote about an exchange she had with her husband that would elicit an empathetic groan from most women.
       She came down with the flu and needed some housekeeping addressed so she tried a little reverse psychology on him. With a sickly voice she said, “Honey, I’m sorry I’m leaving you with such a mess. The laundry needs to be done, the dishes washed, and the floors cleaned.”
      Then, as only a man could, he sympathetically responded, “Don’t you worry, it can wait until you feel up to it.” Reader’s Digest, May 2012, p.92 (IOWS)
