For Better or Mostly Worse

The husband had been slipping in and out of a coma for several months, yet his wife stayed by his bedside every single day. One day, when he came to, he motioned for her to come nearer.

As she sat by him, he whispered, eyes full of tears, “You know, you have been with me all through the bad times. When I got fired, you were there to support me. When my business failed, you were there. When I got shot, you were by my side. When we lost the house, you stayed with me. When my health started failing, you were still by my side. I just wanted to tell you…”

“What dear?” She gently asked, smiling as her heart began to fill with warmth.

“I think you’re bad luck.”
