Default Robotic house wife (c. 1984)

We cleaned my parentsí garage out, and I found a box of old schoolwork that my mom had kept. In going through the box, I found this gem. Apparently, 10yr old 1984 me, turned in an assignment with a design for a robotic house wife. I donít see a grade on it, but back then I was pulling pretty strong Eís, sometimes even an E+. Conduct, S-, but I made up for it with my superior intellect.

I donít think 10yr old 1984 me could have ever thought what it means to have a wife, but Iím pretty sure I wouldíve been disappointed to learn they donít come with machine guns or MX missiles.

I'm guessing the Secret Surprise Compartment is where the sandwiches come out of?

I'd invest in one. Hell, I've invested probably millions in an old fashioned housewife and I still have to feed the dog and she never keeps a shovel handy.

That's pretty cool. But why were you wanting a robotic house wife at 10 years old, thinking ahead to the future? You must have just watched Back To The Future.

House wives or wives of any type were not on any of my priority lists at that point in time.

Good one, your design makes R2-D2 droid a space wimp!

Also, God bless Mothers who keep our old schoolwork. Those old papers are not important to anyone but them, but our Moms truly believed we were all going to be famous someday.

Why does the machine gun look like some kinda 3rd nipple or something?....I mean 1984? Austin Powers hadn't even come out yet.

Curious to know why 10 year old 1984 you thought the shovel was that important . . .
