The husband is disgruntled because he has to go to work every day, while the wife gets to stay home. So they decide to trade places. It sounds like the premise for a reality TV show, but it's the basis of “The Husband Who Was to Mind the House”, an old story from Norway that has at least inspired many sitcom episodes. It was first told in the days when it was rare for the wife to go out and work; but then, as now, housework was a fulltime job in its own right.

We come to you from eastern Massachusetts, where we've been spending some time performing at our favorite Halloween haunted house, Barrett's Haunted Mansion. We also performed recently at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, and were able to absorb the vibrant Halloween atmosphere of Witch City once again. Attending one of our performances was fellow podcaster Clinton of Comedy 4Cast, who strolled around town with us, as we took in a couple of haunted house tours.

Speaking of scary things and Halloween if you would like to read a scary story drop by our website to read A Ghost Story from Gettysburg.

Happy Listening!

Dennis (Husband, Cow) and Kimberly (Narrator, Wife, Pig)
