Marriage 501, Lecture 765: Hoarders, SH style
SH, coming into the kitchen with a stack of newspapers in his arms, newspapers he has brought downstairs from his office: What if I got rid of some newspapers?
Me: That would be so great that I [would reward you handsomely].
Note that the newest paper on the stack is November 2011.
SH: But what if there is something important in there?
Me: What if you walked straight out to the garage and put them in the recycling?
SH: What if I miss something?
Me: Then the world will surely come to an end.
SH: But what if I miss something?
Me: By definition, if it is from 2011, it is no longer news.
