Marriage 401, Lecture 665: Double indemnity, or, Hey you guys! Watch this!
SH: If I had fallen to my death, then your life would be a lot easier.
Me: I know. But watching you die because you put a ladder on the second-floor balcony to trim the tree is not how I want that to happen.
SH: But if I were dead, you'd get the insurance money and the whining in your life would decline 50%.
Me: Oh, I know! I've thought about it. But I don't want you to die doing something where I am watching and thinking, "That's not a good idea." I don't want to be involved.
SH: Not involved?
Me: It needs to be a car accident when I'm not in the car and you're hit by a drunk driver. Then I wouldn't have to feel guilty.
