20. not using a fridge
sorry, it is hard. it requires a full time wife, or some other sort of not real world commitment. i get a little annoyed by the constant suggestion about things like this. they seem to have an undercurrent of- back in the day when women knew their place, we didn't have these problems. like drying clothes on a clothes line. i barely have time to wash clothes at all.
