Don't know if this was a serious response or meant as a funny remark, but an
uneducated audience isn't a very good audience; I'm not sure if having
*more* of that audience is desirable.

No, but isn't it nice that she does?

I quit my full time engineering job to become a full time artist back in
April.  Since then, I've had the most unexpected response from my parents --
they tell me that I'm now a housewife and should learn how to cook and keep
my house clean.  If it weren't for my very supportive husband, I wouldn't be
able to laugh it off quite as easily.

And maybe they have a good case?  Oh-oh, now my cover's blown...
