Ladies Home Journal
My theory on housework is, if the item doesn't multiply, smell, catch fire, or block the refrigerator door, let it be. No one else cares. Why should you?
-Erma Bombeck
Influential humorist, syndicated columnist, and writer Erma Bombeck wrote about the daily life of a suburban housewife from the 1960s through the 1990s. Her columns appeared in 500 newspapers and numerous magazines including Good Housekeeping and Redbook.
