Manly Domesticity

What is it that makes men want to announce to the world that they have completed even the simplest housekeeping task? I have met many men who do this.

My husband does housework. Every time he does, he feels the need to tell me. I don’t tell him every time I wash a dish, vacuum the living room, or take out the trash. Yet this morning, he went out of his way to walk upstairs just to inform me that he had turned on the dishwasher. Why did he think I needed to know this at that moment? There were plenty of clean dishes and glasses available, if I were to need one. Did he expect me to bow down in awe of his manly domesticity?

I wonder what went through his mind that made him decide I would want to be informed. Maybe I’ll ask him later. Or maybe it’s better if I don’t know.
