Marriage 401, Lecture 467: For worse and worse

SH: I want to go into that abandoned house.

Me: I don't.

SH: Not right now. It's getting dark.

Me: Good. Because the last thing we need is for you to put your leg through a rotting floor.

SH: I have life insurance.

Me: It wouldn't kill you. It would just maim you. Then I'd be stuck taking care of you.

SH: I have disability. And I just had a tetanus shot.

Me: Oh that's a comfort. But you'd still need caretaking.

SH: Are you saying I'm not a good patient?

Me: You? A crybaby? Oh, no. Not at all.
