Marital Advice Needed

Post by Turkeytop » Tue Dec 20, 2016 9:34 pm

My wife is always watching the TV program called Property Brothers. The show features two brothers who possess a talent I don't. They go around renovating homes and making them look really good. When I say she watches it all the time, I mean it's like an addiction. Every time I go in the room she has it on.

These guys are much younger and better looking than I am. I told my wife they're probably gay, but she claims to know for certain they aren't. I think she's getting ready to dump me for one, or maybe both, of them.

What should I do?

Maybe I should just bind her up with duct tape so she can't get away on me.

It has to be the good duct tape, though. The cheap stuff, they can work it loose with their tongue.

Duct tape? That brings to mind another Canadian fellow. Maybe you should start wearing a speedo with one red and one green suspenders? Skip the flannel shirt though. Maybe add a tool belt.

Bet that would get her attention.

Handyman's Secret Weapon!

My wife recently duct-taped the office chair our boys use for the upstairs computer. I'd buy a new one, but I know it would just be trashed anyway. :razz

As for TT's dilemma, duct tape across the TV screen might help. Tell her the signal must be out. She might buy it - the gray texture looks a lot like analog snow.

Lots of little black dots would add to the effect...

TT needs to cut the cable.

Cable is to television - what streaming is to radio.

I'm wondering if this thing might pass. Last year her TV hunk was a guy named Mike Holmes. Next year it could be Anderson Cooper. Then, I'd really be sunk. How could I ever compete with a sensitive, new age guy like Cooper?

I like all of those shows.
She's right, from what i have heard, they're straight.
Duct tape comes in all different colors. That way, it will blend in with anything you're working on.
Carpenters glue should also be in your kit.
I suggest you make lots of money so that you can hire all of the work out.

Property Brothers are twins Jonathan and Drew Scott from Vancouver, BC. One's a licensed contractor, the other a real estate agent. Neither are gay, Drew just got engaged to his longtime girlfriend, the other has a girlfriend. Their dad was once a bit part actor in Hollywood. We watch them sometimes, but after awhile, their voices get on my nerves. Shows ok, if you like that stuff. Guy I like the most is Mike Holmes. His shows are very good and he seems like the genuine article, a person who really cares about the people he does work for. And he seems quite honest in a business that has it's share of take the money and run yahoos.

TT, they're on HGTV, which is carried by most if not all cable companies. Their show is probably fairly popular and is on quite a bit.
