The scene, Riley’s weekly poker game. Conversation turns to the topic of how to handle a woman. Back home, in the reality of the domestic world where Peg deals with a blocked kitchen sink. Riley tries his best to keep Peg happy while he takes it easy, and watches her labor over the housework, or at least that’s how he sees it. I think he’s about to learn a big lesson.
Riley makes a realization on his own, and sets out to make up for the past 18 years of having Peg do housework. He wants to giver a rest and take over the cooking, cleaning,washing, and bear Peg’s children. Hey, that’s what he said.
How long will this last? It doesn’t take long for word to get around, and soon all the wives rope their hubbies into chores. All the ladies love him, but what about his poker buddies? Maybe not so much.
Digger O’Dell is on hand with some words of advice, and graveyard puns. What should Riley do? Do right by his wife, or do right by his buddies? He has good intentions, and a plan that… almost works.
