Being a Midwestern American, I am not used to such solicitous treatment.
But I like it.
I suppose it is possible that not all male British partners have this vocation, but I know at least three, and all of them do this. (Good work, British mums, for training your boys so well!)
If you are lacking this service, don’t despair. What you need is
- a partner or a housemate
- tea and milk
- a training regimen (two or three days of drills so that said partner or housemate can practice getting up silently, making the tea and bringing it back just in time for you to wake gently to the world)
Having engaged in the hard work of domestic activism, we all deserve a cuppa in bed.
