Every now and then I like to share with ya'll some handy tips that have helped me out along the way. Today, I'd like to share with you some tips on how to change a flat tire.
Tip #1: Let your husband get out and change the tire. And while he's hard at work, photograph him from the worst angle possible. Later on, repeatedly remark "Honey, your bald spot really is getting bigger." Be sure to follow this up with statements like "It's OK honey, I still love you." Husbands like it when you express your love for them.
Tip #2: Repeatedly ask lots of questions while your husband is hard at work changing the tire. Things like "What's that thingamajig called?" and "What's this thingamajig do?" Or maybe, "What are you doing now?" Husbands enjoy sharing their knowledge and skills with you. Questions like this make a husband feel important.
Tip #3: There is a reason you had children. You know, so you'd have someone to help out around the house. And someone to help change the flat tire. Let one child crank on the jack to lift the car up. Then, let the other child crank on the jack to bring the car back down. They'll fight over who gets to do it. Trust me. They'll think it's so much fun that they can't wait until the next time you get a flat tire.
