Showing Daily Domestic Life with Love

A lesson in doing it right, courtesy of Rose is Rose:





If Lynn had done this same scene, Elly would be a total ice queen, cockblocking John in a way that would make men and women alike--well, the ones who don't drink the Kool-Aid--grab at their crotches with sympathy pains.  She'd shove the laundry basket into his arms or drop it on his chest with intention, make a snarky remark, and then walk off in a huff, or she'd stop, look at him like he was nuts/she had no idea what the heck he was doing it for, and then walk off with a baffled look on his face.  She's working, can't he see that?  What's this with acting all romantic?  Getting yourself into a romantic mindset is for bedtime, in the bedroom, because that's the proper, normal time and place.  Besides, she's not attractive when her hair is a mess and she's dressed in old, stained clothes, and how DARE John think otherwise!  I'm sure Elly has 'Be Romantic' penciled in on her To Do list, know what I mean?
