Gladys: Hi, Dan. I’m surprised to see you here at the supermarket in the middle of the day.
Gladys: I thought you’d be working.
Dan: I am working. I’m a stay-at-home dad and I take care of the kids while my wife goes to work.
Gladys: Oh, did you get laid off from your job?
Dan: No, my wife works full-time out of the house and I work full-time at home.
Gladys: You mean that your wife is the breadwinner and you’re a househusband?
Dan: If you want to put it that way, yes. I’m the caretaker for the kids during the day and I do the household chores.
Gladys: Oh, your wife must be a feminist.
Dan: No, my wife is just a modern woman with modern sensibilities.
Gladys: Well, I know that some families like to live radical lifestyles these days, changing up gender roles.
Dan: We don’t think of it as radical. In fact, it’s quite common nowadays.
Gladys: if you say so. Tell your wife I’d be happy to share my recipes with her when you go back to work and she’s a housewife again.
