The Leader (Nelson) - - FRONT PAGE -

My wife watched fin­ished watch­ing 13 Rea­sons last night.

I didn’t join her, I have a few very spe­cific reser­va­tions about the whole show, but all that aside what hap­pened next was even more dis­turb­ing.

I was stupid enough to sug­gest she could write show called 13 rea­sons why I find my hus­band an­noy­ing.

She was off at a gal­lop and the list had plenty of legs well after 13.

To be fair, there were no great rev­e­la­tions.

I’m not go­ing to list them all, I can’t re­mem­ber all of them any­way but I un­der­stand that my sleep­ing through the kids rais­ing hell ev­ery night could be slightly vex­ing and ask­ing her ev­ery morn­ing if she’s fed the dog could also grow a bit stale after a while.

Then mostly lit­tle stuff, sand in the vase­line type stuff like leav­ing cloth­ing on the floor, lock­ing the car in the garage - that sort of thing. Such fun.

I’m not sure I want to play this game again, and I sense there’s noth­ing to gained from call­ing half time change sides ei­ther.

Luck­ily for me it’s rare that I strug­gle un­der the il­lu­sion that some of my habits are charm­ing and ec­cen­tric. ED­I­TO­RIAL: Stu Hunt (03) 546 2877 email the­leader@nel­son­ AD­VER­TIS­ING SALES: Bron­wyn Wadding­ton (03) 546 2836 DE­LIV­ER­IES 0800 800 515 or cir­cu­la­tion@nel­son­
