Sex Equality

I do much of my work at home these days. This sometimes gets on my wife’s nerves. Although she was born and reared in another country, she has adopted and digested the American belief that the inside of  houses naturally belongs to women.

To avoid tension between us, we have adopted two new rules:

1 I may not talk to her or address her in any way until 1 pm every day;

2  She may address me in any tone of voice, at any level of voice volume, about any topic, at any time of day or night.

PS I am awaiting a woman, any woman, to declare, ” If you story it s true, this is outrageous.” A friend of mine is taking bets on how long it will take.



About Jacques Delacroix

I write short stories, current events comments, and sociopolitical essays, mostly in English, some in French. There are other people with the same first name and same last name on the Internet. I am the one who put up on Amazon in 2014: "I Used to Be French: an Immature Autobiography" and also: "Les pumas de grande-banlieue." To my knowledge, I am the only Jacques Delacroix with American and English scholarly publications. In a previous life, I was a teacher and a scholar in Organizational Theory and in the Sociology of Economic Development. (Go ahead, Google me!) I live in the People’s Green Socialist Republic of Santa Cruz, California.
