Melodic or Melancholic?
Tired of having to keep asking my husband to do something in the yard, I asked him how come if a girlfriend will ask him to do something in the yard, he would do it right away, but when I ask him to do something, it takes him days, and sometimes weeks, to do it.
When a girlfriend asks to do some chores, he would do it right away, knowing that it is the only chore she needs to have done. However, when I ask him to do something, he already knows another chore will need to be done as soon as he finishes the one I asked him to do.
I had told that story to students during a coffee break and one decided to ask the same question to her husband. And his answer was? The tone of voice!
