MADLIBS

It suddenly occurred to me that I, too, would like to have a _____(same noun). Why do I want a ___ (same noun)? I would like to go back to ____(place), so that I can become ___(adverb) _____(noun), support myself, and, if need be, _____(verb) those dependent upon me. I want a ___(same noun) who will work and send me to ___(place). And while I am going to ____(same place) I want a wife to take care of my____(plural noun). I want a wife to keep track of the ____(possessive pronoun) ___(noun) and dentist appointments. And to keep track of mine, too. I want a wife to make sure my ____(plural noun) are ____(verb) properly and are kept clean.Who wouldn’t want a ___(same noun)?
Series:
"I want a wife who will keep
my clothes clean, ironed, mended,
replaced when need be..."
"I want a wife who
will

plan
the menus,
do
the necessary grocery shopping,
prepare
the meals,
serve
them pleasantly, and then
do
the cleaning up while I do my studying..."
To
highlight
the many tasks of a wife.
Being a wife herself, it is ironic that she also wants one.
Humorous
Ethos/Logos/Pathos
DIDLS
Connotations
The wife's duties are
positively
connoted because they benefit the family as a whole:
"I want a wife who is a
good

nurturant

attendant
to my
children,
arranges for their
schooling,
makes sure that they
adequate
social life with their
peers,
takes them to the
park, the zoo
, etc."
Eventually, Brady (as a man) becomes
negatively
connoted herself:
"If, by chance,
I
find
another
person
more suitable
as a wife than the wife
I
already have,
I
want the liberty to
replace
my present wife with another one.
Ethos: She was a wife herself for eleven years
Logos: Her concrete examples using series.
Pathos: Plays on the sympathies of what a wife must do in the relationship: everything.
Concrete vs. Abstract
Her topic is somewhat abstract, (especially in the time period)
Her examples and logic is concrete
PURPOSE: To explain that saying you want a wife is much more simplistic than actually BEING one!
Evidence
Anecdotal!
