10 Lords a Sweeping (or kids - we're not picky)
9 nights of dancing (or dinner, or movies... like I said, we're not picky)
8 maids a cleaning (no cows here for milking, but they could do the grocery shopping too)
7 kids a bathing (who needs swans, but getting my 5 year old to take a bath... now that's a feat)
6 days of laying (on a beach somewhere)
