"What do you do?
You are just a housewife and slave, arent you?
A nursemaid to a bunch of kids?"

"No, I have a fantastic job, a terrific career.
I am a curator in a museum---a museum of memories!"

"You are tied down by a whole family.
What a bore!
Dont you wish you could get away with the fellows
for a real good time?"

"No, I cant waste my time that way.
I am a collector, you see.
I have to spend my time collecting,
whenever Im not tied up in work.
I am collecting memories for our family museum!"
