"News For september twenty. Twenty one We recording today on a. It's a new era. We survived in election That's right yeah. And as a result things are just the way they were before not just the way they were before because now we are three hundred million dollars in deficit because of the stupid recall and all of that money could have been allocated into other things that we could have used like housing and protecting people from vic and providing aid for student loans. And all that crap it's such a microcosm of like the american liberal has experience which is like we fight so hard to win the status quo. Yeah it's the story of of not being republican. I like it's been pretty terrible. Recently with just maintaining the status quo as you said. I mean with happened in texas with their abortion bill and yeah it's just it's just been a hot mess and yeah. The recall is something that we we needed like. It's it's a win but it really doesn't feel like a win. Fear theory completely forgot about it too. 'cause like i soon as my ballot came in just like i just did it because like if you look at the candidates i was like none of these candidates are even remotely acceptable. Like party party aside. It's just like in in terms of like experience and like just attitude. I was like this. Is this like why would you vote for any of these people. You know you would think that and you know as a canadian. I was on the sideline. So i couldn't really do anything. Besides tell my friends to go vote but I do remember the last this happened.

I love russian doll. I like a good time loop story. Although i don't know maybe maybe they should let the monarchy fall who knows and this is a good monarchy. Right that's why they're trying to save it. All monarchy's are bad. But yeah i really like time loop stories like it's always nice to see like creative ways that characters overcome problems and how a ripple effect and how lake time loops stories are very complicated but also simple in terms of just like pitching. So i'm really. I'm really curious. Estee like how the story will turn out. Yeah so congratulations to zeba our next up after a ten house auction william moral one north american rights to jeans adult debut. Mika in real life for seven figures.

Publication is scheduled for summer twenty twenty three. You've got mail. That is a really popular. I guess trope young. I mean i guess since the internet has only got more complex and maybe maybe because like i remember when you've got mail came out and like only people are like. Aol could relate to email because it wasn't available to everybody like if he watch. You've got mail. They have those computers. Where like the screen is black. And when you're typing the font is in green like that's how old you've got mail is but you've got mail is one of my favorite movies. I think it has despite the whole technology not aging very well. The concept has aged very well and this idea of like enemies to lovers but not knowing that their enemies is always interesting. it adds a new dimension to To like the relationship so yeah. I'm pretty excited to read this. Because yeah the internet is is a dark place and i wonder how they've been interacting which platform our enemies on instagram scali. An outright like person that would suck. Well i mean it. It sounds like they have a good cause. I mean a good heart. They're trying to protect their community from judge vacation. It takes a little bit of. I dunno sincerity. I hope it's like some sort of like both hit like fandom beef like star wars. Or i don't know what's a good one twilight whether the ca- i mean twilight has come back by the way there's something called twilight core and like it's very funny because i do go on like fashion tick talk and have been seeing. Tek talkers dress in twilight core fashion. And i'm like dude. This is just like mid two thousand old navy slash retail outfits. This is pretty much. What every teenager war back then.

"Hr dot com number onto our third topic of the week. You might have heard leslie teas that while we mentioned some of the big overall deals that were breaking this past week. We didn't mention the biggest one. That's because that's the topic number three leslie. Tell us a little bit about what went down this week with the south park. Guys but also with reese witherspoon. Yeah it's not one but two different nine hundred million dollar deals and just gonna let that sink in for second a nine hundred million dollar deal for south park creators trey parker and matt stone. They signed with viacom. Cbs that deal includes renewals for south park through its thirtieth season and wait for it. Fourteen movies based on south park franchise for paramount plus including a couple of coming this year to the streamer. So why is this a big deal. And why is that nine hundred million dollar price tag so insane well. The show was renewed for multiple seasons. There's fourteen movies and the guys own par they have an ownership stake in the show So yeah this is. You know we've already reported from from when the hbo max launch day was or the investor day was that hbo max landed streaming rights to south park for five hundred million dollar library deal. They share that with hulu. I mean these guys are easily worth over a billion even before you tally the nine hundred million dollars that they got this week from viacom so the interesting thing here is the strategy so yes so so viacom licensed south park to these other platforms because they get the revenue from it but they also get the exposure to the show on bigger platforms. That aren't paramount. Plus because well they're still growing. they're still obviously. They posted some big subscriber gains this week that you can read about on. Hr in there in the vicodin. Cbs earning stories. But the big strategy here. And i've talked about this a couple of times before is that they are basically leasing out there content to these bigger platforms to get to gain exposure. And then eventually they're going to bring it back home. It's the same reason why you know viacom. Cbs is putting. The paramount is putting the yellowstone prequel 1883 which. Dan talked about the castings at the top of the show. That's going to be for paramount plus instead of paramount network instead of the linear network. That's home to the actual. Yellowstone series. Starring kevin costner. It's all because they're investing in the streaming service. South park is a massive franchise. We've talked about at late. That was our entire first topic about the necessity of building franchises. And using those as a way to get your subscriber dollars the same thing is true here so south park is going to continue to be a massive for comedy central. Eventually the library rights of that are gonna come up for auction again. Chances are probably pretty good. That paramount plus will bring that home or find a way to to share it in a non-exclusive basis but eventually and there's a great story on on bloomberg dot com about the deal. They had the great exclusive before it was announced on the earnings call but the bloomberg story basically says that parker and stone eventually want to sell their company and with a company. That has an ownership stake in a mega hit like south park which is now film and tv. Of course they had a theatrical show. You know the movie that was released a few years ago. They're gonna make fourteen more for paramount plus so if you've got ownership in a massive library like that. What is their company worth. Well here's an here's a tip. So reese witherspoon fellows. Sunshine was sold this week for nine hundred million dollars to an investment firm backed. By two former high-ranking disney execs blackstone group. That's overseeing by. Kevin meyer and tom stags who hoped the venture will serve as basically an indie studio that will supply content to other streaming outlets. So we talk at length about the need to own your content. That's what that's what viacom. Cbs is doing with south park. They own they own that along with parker and stone. Well reese witherspoon. Company doesn't have a library of assets or any asset for example. That could even remotely compare to south park. What it does have is. Is it a production company that his expanded into scripted and unscripted and lifestyle and they have the reese witherspoon book club and all of that and that's a huge presence on social as well as a great business model so what blackstone is hoping to do is use hello sunshine and become an independent studio that will be an arms dealer that because all these companies are so walled off basically paramount and saying viacom. Cbs saying all the south park steph is gonna live within the viacom. Cbs foles it'll be on our streamer. It'll be on linear networks etc. So if you've got these big creators under overall deals and you're keeping a lot of that their top line content for yourself this blackstone group company is going to do the opposite. They're gonna come in and say we've got all this stuff. Where do you wanna go. It's basically sony but with what they're hoping is bigger and better producers than than indeed studio like sony house. So there's a lot going on this and you know we talked you know in our first segment to about the about bad robot and how overlook is being shopped outside of the the warner media portfolio. Same idea there except imagine if you have a company like bad robot in hello sunshine who can really sell anywhere. It's basically the opposite of an overall deal because there's no exclusivity you're basically creating a new studio that that can that can sell anywhere that that doesn't have a streaming service or a linear network that it has to supply contact too so at the same time you know. You've got a couple of other production companies on the open market now. Lebron james springhill company. That's that's up for sale as well. So if reese witherspoon company is worth nearly a billion how much springhill could it be worth and from a larger sense if the south park guys sign a deal worth nine hundred million dollars eventually when they're going to sell their company with which has an ownership stake in south park. What does that company worth is that too. I don't know what's john what shana leeann worth you know. If does she have an ownership. She has an ownership stakes in britain and oliver netflix content. Does she have an ownership stake in grey's anatomy. I mean these production companies. It's it's mind boggling. So in a larger sense you know if you've got traditional studios like universal television abc signature and cbs studios. They're used to selling across the spectrum. That that's an old business model. But now that they all have streaming services to provide content to. That's their first priority. You're not going to a marvel. Show live outside of disney plus or outside the disney ecosystem if they own the rights. I mean maybe you'll see a.

"Cali. Thank you so much for being here having me I'm excited to be here. So this is your debut novel has already been optioned by Lena Wave for a film. It's already Reese Witherspoon's book club. We thought of it first. By the way, we just We just get to Instagram first. But we want to save your fellow writers out here even though it's your debut novel. It's your debut published novel. Yes, this is the first good one. There were many before many, many novels before that, I hope will never see the light of day. Yeah, What was it about this one that made it across the finish line. I think in grad school, I had time to really make characters and plot lines really bulletproof before the novelty before, though there's a lot of similar themes. I didn't really understand that I was writing about class when I was doing it, But this was the chance for me to really solidify all of those things, and I think that when I had the time and space to do it well, that's that's what came out of it. So you went to the prestigious Iowa writer's workshop. Um, and you were back and forth about grad school a little bit? Yes, sometimes because I wasn't sure And sometimes because I didn't get accepted of the first time I applied to grad school, I applied to nine different schools, and I got rejected from every single one of them. Yeah, it was hard. It was really hard. And at the time I was working as a receptionist and my then boyfriend had this job opportunity in Arkansas. And he said, Do you want to come? Arkansas is cheap, you, Khun, try again and just write your butt off. And so I did. So I moved to Arkansas for year and I got a job as a barista, and I applied again toe all the same schools and the second time around. I got into nine schools, so just the difference. Of just the difference in writing and then having had time and space to figure out my thoughts made a huge difference. I think it's also really important for people to hear that. It's not just like, Oh, she had a debut novel and became a movie. I mean, this is a lot of work. You've put into this wallpaper in my room with rejections, for sure. Yeah. So let's start talking about the book such a fun age. So we first meet Amira, Where is she? In her life. Amira is 25. She is a graduate from Temple University. She did five years there, Get that victory laugh. I did the same thing, And she's in that place where she's constantly comparing herself to her friends and their status. I think there's a place in your twenties were suddenly I think with jobs and with relationships. Suddenly it's Okay, My friend's getting married. I need to spend how much money on this bridesmaidsdresses. We're going where and I have these bills to pay. And how much? How are we supposed to be doing this? And so Amir is a bit lost because she doesn't have this guiding thing. This passion that she's always wanted to do, and that leaves her Feeling a bit inadequate. Why was it important for you as a writer? Creatively for her not to know. What she wanted to dio. Some of the people who don't have they can't get to it, but they know that's my dream. She's not even sure what her dream is right. I think it's a bit of a cop out to always have characters who have these perfectly laid out paths. And I also think that There's so many people I know for sure when I was your 18 they say, pick a major and you picked when you're supposed to do that for the rest of your life, And there were so many jobs I didn't even know existed until I was 28 29. And so I wanted to create this kind of perfect. Mediocre B student who's a really talented person and other aspects and someone over there is a B student. That was a lot of recognition. Yeah, I wanted to explore what life was like for her because I know I wanted to write. I knew I wanted that when I was baby sitting, and I still found it really difficult. So I thought, like, what would it look like? If you didn't have this guiding principle the entire time? UNAMIR. She's She's pretty cool with being a baby sitter. It's everybody around her. Who seems to want something else for her. How does she see her job? Just a means to an end. It's just right now. I think that Briar is a huge Deciding factor for Amir about like how she sees her job. She loves this little girl. She's fallen into this and it works. And I think that she loves being good at her job and knowing what's coming next. But yeah, everyone around her has this like, really this role root like rejection. Tio Myra's natural rejection of careers on and they kind of can't handle it tomorrow, for one is like you need to figure this out. For sure. I think that that happens a lot in the black community that like It seems not just like you're holding yourself back. But you're holding us back and you need to want more. Yeah, people have a huge problem with her, not wanting more. Let's talk about Alex for employer. So she's kind of this. I kept thinking group. I have to admit I kept the in group when I thought about Alex. She would definitely like some group. How did you find her voice? What kind of blog's? Did you read? What were you trying T get into Alex. Alex really took shape. Well, I wrote 50 pages and I gave them to a friend and he said, star over and that was hard, but he was really right. And I wasn't finding the good parts of Alex. She's really savvy she's carrying. She's really loyal. She could be a really great mom. And so as soon as I was highlighting all of the parts of her that are really wonderful. The part where she makes a mistake. I think hit a lot harder, but I was also a nanny for six years. I worked at night. You stick on your second and second at the craft studio. I did, like eight birthday parties a week there a cz witnessing a lot of different dynamics and a lot of moms and Had a lot of people tell me how you know great. My hair is and things like that. So there wasn't like this world that I didn't know. But I also had families that I felt like I was part of the family, so I definitely know what that feels like. Why did you wanna switch between the two voices? This could have been in just from Amira's point of view very easily. She's such a strong character. I mean, I love characters that you Wanna shake them and hug them at the same time, And I think that's Alex. For sure. Um, she has so much going on in her head. That sometimes is really problematic. But I think is really human, Teo and I think that Um I love characters who know better But don't act better all the time. And I wanted I think her point of view was too fun. Not to dio. Yeah. Let's talk about I've been sort of stressing it just for the point of Alex. Her name is Alex. And she changes the spelling of it, too. From a l e x to a l I X What is the decision about that one letter? What does that tell us? I mean, I think, Nay, I love names. And I was little I used to carry around a name book in case I got bored. I don't know what I was doing with it. But I think that so much is carried in names from history to pain to trying to change who you are. And the fact that she changes her name. To the French spelling, I think shows a lot about what she's trying to elevate her own personality. She's trying to forget who she Woz and I think, adding that little tiny I makes a world of difference. How would you describe Alex's brand of feminism? Leaks his brand of feminism. Is Spirited and energetic, but unfortunately it does that thing that sometimes liberalism and feminism do at this weird intersection where it says I'm so aware of inequality..

"Since the last episode was published, the United States has begun reckoning once again and with our past and present history of racism and discrimination. The murder of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer has ignited a new wave of protests and a wave of awareness in America. The profiles of anti-racist activists have soared over the past month. The past month rather in books, thanks blower anti-racism are climbing the New York. Times Bestseller List and causes that have been around. Forever are receiving the attention and funding always deserved. While it is good that Americans have begun examining their own whiteness and white supremacy. I'm also certain that black Americans indigenous Americans and other people of color are confused and frustrated to why. It's taken us so long to see things for what they are. Even as the headlines Die Away, and the spotlight of social media moves onto something else. Real change will require lasting attention. With that in mind I'm releasing this interview. I did with the author and activist Austin channing Brown. Her Book I'm still here. Black Dignity and a world for Whiteness was published in two thousand eighteen. It was recently chosen for Reese Witherspoon Book Club and has spent the past few weeks on the New, York Times bestsellers list. Her words and witness made for this moment. And every moment. As the title of her book attests she is still here. The black community is still here has always been here and has always deserve justice. Black lives, matter. She's white supremacy. Racial Justice in antiracism are essential for evangelicals. xfinity locals post evangelical or anyone who has come from white, even jellicoe tradition and culture to reckon with. As I wrote in the February edition of newsletter. The Post Evangelical Post. Why Evangelical are told they are part of a great story, and their life is to be in service to that story through faith and works. Too much of the story, white evangelicals are told obfuscates the truth of history, and the lived experience of so many marginalized people, and that's being far too generous to be honest. The great story why even generals are truly call to our era of history is to confront our own whiteness, reckon with the realities of white supremacy and work toward justice.

"Hello and welcome back to another episode of Control Delete. Today's Girth is someone that I've wanted to interview both so so long I'm a huge fan of her work. I've listened to every podcast that she's ever been on. This was very exciting, but she came onto control delete. So, today's guest is Glennon Doyle I. Absolutely adored her books. Love Warrior, which was an Oprah Book Club selection as well as her. New York, Times Bestseller carry-on Warrior, she is an activist and thought leader, and she's also the founder of together rising, which is an all women led nonprofit organization. That really is helping people all over the world. She has raised over twenty five million dollars for women, families and children in. In crisis in this episode, we discussed Glennon. newburgh untamed which has taken the world by storm. The full name is untamed. Stop pleasing start living, and it's gone on to become a number one new. York Times Bestseller and Book Club selection in Reese Witherspoon Book. Club. The book is about how Glenn, and for so many years denied feeling unhappy in her life, and and she thought she was doing everything just right on. On that classic tick box of life, and then well speaking conference, she looked Owen across the room, which is Abby Wambach, and she fell instantly in love with her, the voice rededicate out the one that she buried beneath decades of numbing addictions and social conditioning. The book untamed is a really amazingly written memoir, also wake-up coal, and it's really unique in the way. It's being written and we talk about that in this. This episode. It's not being written in your classic format that we expect it's truly unique, and you will read it so quickly. Because of the way it's written. It has story of how she learned that being a responsible mother is not one who gives up who she is for her children, but one who shows them how to Philly live, and this really is a book about unleashing trust and wildest selves and instincts. We talk in this episode about how she got the book out that to so many people during lockdown and I've picked up some of my favorite bits I one talk to her about in the book that really resonated with me, and in general we just discuss how to be a little bit braver and a bit wilder in the lives we live. If you need more Glennon content after you've listened to this episode. She is also doing some incredible instagram lives and I g TV uploads every day pretty much, and she radio's just the pep talk. I think we all need especially right. Right now so I hope you enjoy this episode. I want to apologize in advance for the quality of this one. My microphone wasn't working. And also because you're on Google hangouts while doing it the Internet connection probably wasn't the best, so you know I'm still trying to just make this work. And I really got not to meet Glennon person because we organized to do it while she is in London, but obviously that didn't happen, so yeah, please bear with me with the sound, but I promised. It's worth it for all of the incredible nuggets of wisdom that glennon drops in this episode. She liked it. Please delete rating or review on I changed. It helps massively and I will see you next week..

"Green the United States is home to a community of prominent Iranian American activists writers and journalists in the past week they have seen their native country edge closer to the brink of war with the United States before pulling back in because Melissa block has been speaking to some of them about their fears and their hopes as our own if you see author of the bestselling memoir reading Lolita in Tehran left her homeland for good more than twenty years ago now from her spacious book filled apartment in Washington DC she anxiously follows events in a run through texts and calls the VC jotted down notes from a recent conversation with a friend in Tehran and she told me in wonder and shock we are watching the game played between two lunatics who ever wins one thing is certain that you don young people are the losers the face he says the Iranian people have once again become pawns in this deadly game between two adversaries a game that's especially perilous now after the U. S. targeted killing of a running in general Qassem Soleimani no one can accuse me of collaborating or being in favor of the Islamic regime for the past forty years I have been fighting it but that does not mean that to you just as Mr trump so graphically Colditz Ted mean eight necessarily money instead nephews he says you're bringing war criminals to justice you do not act the way they act if you believe that they are assassins you don't assassin look I don't like extra territorial extra judicial assassinations by anyone anywhere that's a running an American writer Roy how cocky on sure

"System for re balancing the domestic work between partners and putting an end to the invisible work that women do whether we work outside the home are not and airplay has just been announced as Reese Witherspoon Book Club Pick for October Eve rod ski thanks for talking to us so great to be here tell me how old your kids three is that right yes I have a Zack who's just turned eleven Benjamin who's just turned eight and Anna the baby she's turn three wow and you managed to get this book done you were just telling me before we started that it was seven years of research went into this book yes seven years of research from when I received a text or my husband that started this whole thing so I'm happy to tell you about that Charles about that sometimes they say researches me search right so I started this is looking for a solution for myself I guess seven years of research but I would like to say that I was born to write this book because I'm a product of a single mother her and I had a first hand view of it looked like for one person to try to do it all and that men helping her with late utility bills and managing eviction notices that came when she was working nights and from an early age I vowed that this would not be me that I would have a true partner in life and amy it did I had that you partner I married that you partner were killing it in business in life he helped me secure my dream job in Samantha P I'm a lawyer so I helped him mark up his operating agreements as he grew his business we took turns doing dishes we took turns during the laundry it felt really air will cut to two kids later seven years ago and I find myself sobbing on the side of the road over text my husband sent me that tax just said I'm surprised you didn't get blueberries and I remember thinking to myself what I was really thinking was you know if my marriage is going to end it should be over something way more dramatic like an affair with an NFL player but what I was really thinking was I'm so overwhelmed I can't even manage a grocery list when I used to be able to manage a team of employees so you internalized that instead of saying why didn't you remember the blueberries I'm not surprised but you did I did I was of course why don't you get the blueberries and super defensive but I think at that point I talked about this in the book that women have a lot of it's on me messaging I heard all over this country and I fell in it too I had a lot of my husband makes more money than me so even though my career is valuable I should still be the ones who picks up the blueberries and so when I didn't do it I felt like I was failing and then I also felt super resentful because what hi was all of his household and domestic crap falling on me you know all of it and it shouldn't have because I am somebody who's trained to use my voice I am a lawyer I am somebody who from a young age from a single mother household decided this was not going to happen to me and it still did and so the first thing you day which I think is where what we've been talking about too is that you need to make the work list visible right the work is invisible a campy appreciated if they don't even get it so you made this list of the recall at the stuff I do list and you thought it would be Cathartic and it was but it wasn't enough can you tell us a little bit about that. and the way you thought it might I really had a ha moment that maybe seth wasn't valuing all I didn't at home because he didn't see it and what if we make the invisible visible because visibility in my mind equals value so because visibility equals value I decided to write down every single thing I did with my time that took more than two or three minutes and you really broke it down right like a birthday party has eighteen sub tasks it hasn't west by the cake exactly so other kid's birthday celebrations I wrote that down and then what do you do for another kid's birthday celebration will you have to RSVP that took more than two minutes you have to purchase a gift that can take up to thirty minutes right card if you feel up for it another five minutes get arrange transportation to the birthday party three minutes get them to the birthday party five minutes stay at the birthday party if they're young an hour or two rate so it starts building and that's what happened it was an excel spreadsheet and there was tabs at the bottom and by the end after sourcing it with hundreds of women across this country the lists had gone viral from friends two friends of friends two friends of friends and finally at the end and it's almost a year there was over a thousand items invisible work on this list and ninety eight tabs and decide I'm so proud of this spreadsheet amy I'm so proud of fit that I finally decided to get the Kerr's to send it off to seth to my husband and I send the seventeen thousand megabyte spreadsheet to him with a big all caps subject line that says can't wait to discuss and his response came through a little bit while later and I didn't even get the courtesy of the three monkey emojis I just got one monkey that sad monkey that's covering its is I don't WanNa deal with US yeah sort of Yikes and not wow we need a new system in place definitely not that but yes I don't WanNa see of this maybe let's keep it invisible in a way it felt really deflating at the time and I kept thinking you know am I gonNa just be resigned to being the she falls parent as I call that and not living sort of the career and marriage combo that I thought I would have you could Wallo and you know a lot of books up to that point had said bliss and so they made the epic list and it didn't work and then I realized lists alone don't work but systems do and I'm somebody who creates systems for living and fair play which is the result of a long journey is working so the fairplay system it is a specific system which I love right we're not stuck in the self righteous rage that we do all of this which we're not wrong feel that but we want to change it we need a system and can you talk in your book about the conceive plan execute yes yes way to manage projects can you talk about that and why that's different than saying look how much I do so like to say is that everything you need to know about fair play you can learn from mustard okay and this is what I mean when you notice that your John Johnny likes yellow mustard French's yellow mustard at the picnic and then you think to yourself I want him to have that yellow mustard everything else you need for the market for all your weeknight meals that's what I call planning then someone has actually get there but to the store are to purchase the mustard that's execution that's where men step in and that's a problem and it's a problem for men as well as then because what happens is men WANNA help and so they go to the store for the mustard but inevitably because they have no context they bring home the Spicy Gijon that they like and they don't buy the franchise yellow and then women all over the country are crying saying I can't even trust my husband to bring home the type of mustard how am I gonNA trust him to make a living will for us and all of a sudden we go down this trust fall where things are you know sort of devolving very quickly into a bigger patterns. Obviously it's not about the blueberries it's not about the wrong type of mustard is you can talk about groceries the full card and what's entailed it went you'd like to cut bring home and why you're getting the French's yellow mustard it may take longtime the first conversation it saves you hours and hours of time when one person's handles the full mustard situation the full conception planning execution seven and that's what fear plays about one hundred card game that represents every single task for your home and family and I ask that when you hold the card you hold it with full. CPI with full ownership and that's with one card is changing the game even if one spouse takes a full hard with full ownership that can change the game does not have to be fifty fifty and I imagined in the short term you probably have to accept that if the maternal `gate-keeping that we can do is part of the problem also right that they finally do a task and like well that's and how she likes your sandwich you can't cut it like that and they're like well how am I supposed to know I'm going to give up that we in the short term of these new systems have to accept that may be the mustard is going to be exactly the way we think the mustard should be the whole point is we're handing over the conceiving and planning part yes but I don't think women need to expect spicy dijon mustard They can expect to get is yellow when they give context because what I talk about in the book I have a full chapter on this the entire American towards system is based on a concept called the reasonable person standard and what it means is what does a reasonable person do so I asked couples to set their values and standards first before you enter the system and that means having some really important conversations over what you value and the standards in which you want to do things I'll give you an example garbage my husband and I had a thirty minute precision over garbage because yes I wanted him to fully own garbage and by owning garbage that meant putting the bag back in the liner that meant taking it out to Allie just put it by the door yep he has the right to do all the garbage components that you think would need to get done that's ownership but the standards like you said I'm not going to lower my standards and say garbage never has to go out because men have low standards minute high standards I never found that I found that when you can talk about a reasonable standard that works for both of you things change in sometimes like I said these conversations can take twenty minutes to talk about garbage but then they save you lifetimes of headaches and my husband and I sat down and I said you lived in a fraternity and I said to my husband I grew up in a household with a single mother where I became an organizational management specialist because everything was so disorganized and clued trash on the floor that include dishes piling up that I kept trying to enter the sink over and over again for my mother and garbage triggers me it triggers me because it reminds me of how I grew up and I really believe in value tidy home it makes my brain thrive and so my husband looked at me and said I totally get that but I don't WanNa be nagged when you taking out the garbage don't put the garbage liner on my pillow just tell me when should we talk about the we wouldn't ever treat the home the way we treat anything even my aunt Mary Ends Mahjong Group has clearly.
