Hall: Surprise A Wife, Reap Her Anger

I want it on the record that I would not paint the house orange behind my wife's back. No matter how much I want to paint the house orange, I would never act unilaterally painting the house any new color at all when she is out of town.

Similarly, neither of us would replace our present car with a new one without telling our marriage partner about it. She would never secretly trade in our current car on a new and different one without my input. It takes two to tango in this and in all but the most insane marriages/Bill Hall, Lewiston Tribune.
