The kind where she says “I have very painful stye in my eye and I will surely die.” He said “You will live, I will run to town and get some “stuff” for your eye.” And she lived to SEE another day. ( Last Sunday) She had the tombstone all pictured in her minds eye..one big eyeball..and it would say “She died, from a stye, in her eye.”
The kind where when she broke her ankle so seriously the Doctors didn’t know if they could save her leg..as they wheeled her away for a final stab at a surgery that might work..she said “Goodbye, I am going to die now..have a good life.” He said “I am going to go get a haircut and I will see you later.” And he did.

The kind where she said “Just drop me off at the Funeral Home, roll me out on their driveway and then it won’t be so far for them to pick me up when I succumb to the flu.” He said tomorrow will be a better day..and it was. ( 2008)

He just said “I hope you didn’t buy me a card, I was going to buy you one but I decided to buy Vitamins instead.” She said “I didn’t buy you a Valentines Card either..I will kiss you instead.” He said “Sounds good to me.” :)
