I feel ashamed for being alive. My husband avoids me, my teenage daughter hates my guts, my housekeeping sucks, and I have no income. My life is worth exactly $20K. This is what my family will get if I die from a natural cause. Definitely not enough to make them love me back.

On the other hand, my husband’s natural death will make his insurance broke and me filthy rich. Which means no more guilt, no hate – only my daughter’s unconditional love, lots of it.

So, it is decided: I stay and my hubby goes - as naturally as possible.

    The last line is so perfectly devious, it is infinitely entertaining. Great work!
