Sentence: Tony is an active, if slightly paunchy, dad. He plays with the kids. He even rides his bike a couple days a week. A strange affliction hits him when household chores are mentioned.

The cure comes as quickly as it manifests as soon as the chore is complete or even assigned to someone else.
