No morning sleep on sundays in this neighborhood (or any neighborhood before) because Sundays is the big cleaning and laundry day for sicilian housewives. Sundays is when the house gets cleaned from top to toe and most laundry gets washed. Why so? Yes, the husband is home and he has to see how much work a household is. During weeks not much gets done and some ladies do not even drive their kids to school if they are tired. It is quite amazing how easy a mans mind is to fool.

Lady: I would also like to work, but taking care of the household is so much work.

Jojo, surpriced she says that to me in the hallway infront of her husband, answers just with a smile.


Ingen morgons?mn p? s?ndagar i denna stadsdel (eller n?gon stadsdel innan) eftersom s?ndagar ?r den stora st?dnings- och tv?ttdagen f?r sicilianska husfruar. S?ndagar ?r n?r huset reng?rs fr?n topp till t? och de mesta tv?tten blir tv?ttad. Varf?r s?? Ja, mannen ?r hemma och han m?ste se hur mycket arbete ett hush?ll ?r. Under veckorna blir inte mycket gjort och n?gra orkar inte ens k?ra sina barn till skolan om de ?r tr?tta. Det ?r ganska fantastiskt hur l?tt en mans sinne kan luras.
Kvinnan: Jag skulle ocks? vilja arbeta, men att ta hand om hush?llet ?r s? mycket arbete.
Jojo, ?verraskad att hon s?ger det till mig i hallen framf?r sin man, svarar bara med ett leende.
