My shirt button fell off, can you sew on later?
Please take my suit to the drycleaner.
I need new socks, can buy them for me?
Can you organize my wardrobe?
Remember to buy cotton swabs, we’re almost out.
Some days later…
Did you sew on the button like I asked?
Oh no, honey I totally forgot…
Did you take my suit to the drycleaner?
Whoops, darling I didn’t have time…
Did you the socks and cotton swabs?
Oops, I forgot!
I bet you didn’t organize my wardrobe either, right?!

Dare- Task #15
“Starting today you will prioritize your husband’s requests- whether big or small, it doesn’t matter. He needs to know that he is a priority in your life.
