For a plain, hard-working man the home is not the one tame place in the world of adventure. It is the one wild place in the world of rules and set tasks.
I think it's because you lend a certain aura of sanctimony...
The etymology of sanctimony is interesting, but debated. Some (most notably Dr. Morten Gage) believe it is derived from two words: "sanc", which is the past tense of to sink and "mony", a variant spelling of "money". Thus, sanctimony, or "sank money" indicates a capital investment, as in the sentence, "The newlyweds sanctimony into a fixer-upper." Others, for example renown philogist Ewerst Rulie from the Old College at Ova-Upon-Hamm University, contend that the "sanc" element comes from the Latin "sans" meaning "without". This alternative explanation accounts for the use of the word in sentences such as the following: "Dude, I can't go see the new Wolverine movie with you because I am sanctimony."The aura of sanctimony I lend is undoubtedly of the second kind, unless you factor in the massive of amounts of elective cosmetic surgery I underwent to achieve the physique displayed in the photo.
