You're right.  I can state with great assurance that my wife is not
impressed in the least by any of my maintainership duties.

The dog, on the other hand is very impressed.  But, then, he's impressed
by the fact that I can so easily hide the ball so that's not as big a
deal as it sounds.  Actually, now that I think of it, if I'm just doing
this for the dog then I should just stick with the ball and cut out all
of the extra work...
