Five women meet to discuss their addiction to chores - Chore-A-Holics Anonymous

Screen reader version: 

Five women of various ages gather for a meeting of “chore- anon.”

Woman #1: “I’m Alexa. I changed the oil on our car while my husband watched American Idol. Am I an enabler? I want some answers here.”

Woman #2: “I’m Sylvie. I’m tired. So, so tired. Really tired. Tired…. Tired…..”

Woman #3: “I’m Julie. I did seven chores during my 45 minute lunch break. But who’s counting?”

Woman #4: “I’m Anna. I haven’t read a book or seen a movie for over seven years.”

Woman #5 [slumps head]: “DO WE HAVE TO CLEAN UP AFTER THE MEETING?”
