big questions

a sociologist was conducting some field research on changing roles in domestic households. one of his subjects was a housewife who he doorstepped. after explaining the project the researcher asked if the woman would help by asking a few questions. she agreed.

"who makes all the important decisions in your house?" 
"oh. my husband 
of course”
"so for example, who decides on which family car you should buy?"
"that’s me. he’s much too busy"
"how about choosing a family doctor?"
"me again, he hates doctors"
"educating the children?"
"he leaves all that to me. i have much more time"
"life and home insurance?"
"me"
"holidays?"
"me"

"so what big decisions does your husband make?”
"oh. he decides whether we should have a referendum on EU membership. what the chancellor should be doing about the budget deficit. whether there needs to be tighter immigration controls, that sort of thing."

"this year marks the 40th anniversary of the founding of blondie, and to celebrate, the band’s co-founder, guitarist, and songwriter, chris stein, has released a new photography book remembering its glory days. a brooklyn native, stein studied briefly at the school of visual arts before dropping out “to be a hippie," he writes in the book’s introduction, and first met debbie harry in 1973. a year later, they founded blondie."
