"I would also be disturbed by your implication that club soda and tonic water would be synonymous."

""Could I use..." Then it wouldn't be a mojito, it would be something else.  Not that you can't try it, it may even be good but any flavored soda will totally change the taste of the drink."

"Yeah should do the work. Rum and lime go with pretty much everything. Ginger Ale also works very well, but needs some sugar. Try to google Rum Highballs."

"Go ahead and try it, maybe you will like it more than mojitos with club soda. The best things usually come from accidents."

"A minor note.  A retired fellow I know gets the some of the same grief about not helping with housework.  At the same time, he's also the guy whose wife never required (or apparently asked) him to do more in the house than make…"

"I've seen it with my dad who had no career either; whose job "prevented" him from doing what he wanted to do AND with my father in law, who had an illustrious career as a doctor and then psychiatrist. Retirement broke them; without a…"

"Now this begs the question of whether or not he was helping her around the house during his working years. If he was helping at that time and has stopped, then your mom should explore why. If he was not helping out during his working years, and now…"

"I don't think the interest here is in whether Mom has a right to be peeved, but in whether it's your job to take sides in your parents' marriage."

Peter Arkson replied to Peter Arkson's discussion Problem with my dad's retirement (advice needed)
"Why is it that you assume that Mom doesn't deserve to peeved?  It seems to me that it is rather unfair for her to come home after a full day of work only to cook and clean while my dad watches TV.  "
