Tom knew if he left anything out on the kitchen counter, Marie would put it away. It was subtle at first but he noticed how quickly his wife would put the bread back in its place or the banana peel he left out would disapper and be desposited in the compost bucket. Tom could eat and leave any mess and sooner or later Marie would appear in the kitchen and clean up. She didn't mean to pick up after him. He did not consider himself a slob. They were co-habitating and living life together, peacefully.
