What does it take to make yourself into a hero in your wife’s eyes?
It’s blisteringly hot and he’s hungry and tired. In fact he’s exhausted, but he’s not giving up. Food is low and so is his morale; but he knows he’ll win out in the end and gain his wife’s lasting admiration. Right now, she thinks he’s a wimp. Married him on impulse when he impressed her for just a moment a while back, attending to a distressed pet.
But he’s a man, a real man, and he’s proving it right now. She won’t be laughing at him anymore. Not after this.
