He Beat Me, Darn It!!


As a 1930s wife, I am

Take the test!

This was a fun little test. According the the scoring legend, I fall in the middle of the Superior category. Some of the questions made me laugh - like the one that asked if I "use dope." Did they have "dope" in the 1930's??? Dope???

Another one that made me wonder was the question that asked "Do you wear red nail polish?" Now, would that be a positive or a negative? I mean, on the one hand, it could be seen as glamorous and keeping up with yourself. We all know how much maintenance red nail polish requires. But in the 1930's did it mean you were (gasp) a floozy???

Now, the painful part to admit is that I took the Husband quiz as well, answering for Hubby. I really tried to be quite honest and fair. And that man got 81 points!!! That puts him the the Very Superior category!!

So now, in order to at least get equal to his score, I'm making some resolutions. Wanna hear them? From now on, I will:

  • Wash the top of the milk bottle before opening it
  • Keep the seams in my hose straight
  • Make sure my slip is not showing
  • Not slow up card games with chatter and gossip
  • Wear a nightgown instead of pajamas (oh, the horror!!!)

No, seriously, there were some interesting points the quiz made with regards to our consideration towards our husbands. It was fun and made me think a little bit.

Bonnet tip to Misty for sharing this quiz on her blog. She got a 91.

I must sit at her feet and learn of her ways.

LOL, lori!!!! i'm not exactly sure how i got my excellent score! but i'll take a tip'o'the bonnet for sure! :)
i liked your commentary, and do think the questions could go different ways depending on which century you were answering them for!
btw do you still want those recipes?

That was fun, I only had a 60. But I do wear red nail polish (and hubby likes it). Also there were a few things that I probably would have scored points for that would not have scored me points with hubby (and a few that I do, that probably docked me some points, but hubby likes). Part of the RESPECT thing I'm learning with your help.

I scored average ;)

Funny. I sometimes wear read nail polish, but not nearly often enought to worry about upkeep!

My nails are usually naked.

I wonder what that means.
