The second picture is excerpted from yesterday's evening paper.
A eighty year-old man contributed that he wants to share housework with his wife.
I really admired his thought. He mentioned for not only me but also for all wives who are busy with housework.
Although there is a long time before my husband is retired from his work, I wish my husband had the same idea as the old man.
However, I don't want to dwell on that to my husband.
I then underlined with a red pencil that when a husband is retired from his work, his wife wants to be retired from the housework at the same time.
That's exactly what I wanted to appeal to my husband!

My husband came home from his work last night. After a while, he was reading the evening paper without saying a word in front of me.
I didn't say anything, either.

Thank you very much, Mr. Eighty! I'll give him a big hand.

The second picture is an excerpt from yesterday's evening paper.
An eighty year-old man contributed that he *shares the housework with his wife, because he wishes to.

*I am assuming the old man is already retired and is already helping his wife.

I really admired his thoughtfulness. He had not only spoken to my *ears, but to the ears of all wives who are busy with housework.

When you speak to someone's ears...you are saying something that they wish to hear. When you speak to someone's heart...you are making them feel what they crave to feel.


Although my husband is a long way from retirement, I hope that he will, one day, have the same thoughtful idea as had the old man.

Hello, Shiroi Tora.

Thank you very much for the corrections.
I was glad to learn that 'speak to someone's ears' and 'speak to someones's heart'.

I bet you share the housework with your wife.
