Ten Reasons I Don’t Hate the Mrs.
1. She does my laundry, and Holden’s laundry, and Gemma’s laundry (and her laundry as well).
2. She can give me helpful advice when the girls I coach are acting in ways that defy rational explanation (which, of course, is fairly often).
3. She once drove to Tooele (pronounced “two-will-uh” for those who are ignorant) just to watch me coach a soccer game.
4. Although she’s had several prime opportunities, she has yet to make me sleep in the garage (we do have a garage by the way, and if I had to sleep there I think I would cry).
5. She knows who Tim Duncan is and what team he plays for.
6. She keeps me updated on such important things as the Bachelorette and the latest Taylor Swift news.
7. In eight years of searching, she was the only one who could consistently put up with my complete lack of mental awareness.
8. She supports (and even encourages) my cardigan obsession. (Side note: The other day I wore a cardigan to school and one of my students tweeted “I’m pretty sure Mr.Wright is wearing a girls sweater”. I still haven’t recovered. It's not a girl's and it’s not a sweater.)
9. She has survived three years in the Goshe (which, for a Salemite, is no small task).
10. She gave birth to the cutest girl on the planet (in my humble opinion).
