So is it a way of emphasizing on the significance of the fact that your wife has cleaned the window by saying that you have to answer to higher authority if you fail to keep fingerprints off it?
Maybe Im just tired but that didnt sink in at first glance, I'll give it time.
Maybe the carbohydrates rush after my dinner will do the trick.

Its so very important that I would not get my fingerprints on the windows now, God would forbid it if given the opportunity.
Its a way of embelishing the importance of something by sayiing one would have to answer to a higher authority if you failed to do something.
