Hubby, you know the semantic root for “wife” is said to derive from ”veiled person”; some say, further back, “shame”?

Sure I do, wifey; you know my fondness for etymology, as surely as you know I know the derivation of “husband” comes from “master of the house” and, digging further back, to “manage thriftily”; be a “steward”.

Does that bother you?

Things only matter when they do.

And you matter me.

And I hear your substance and I'm not ashamed to say I'm not the boss of you; this ain't no arrangement of biblical or commercial convenience.

Good, 'cos you owe me for groceries.
