The Bright Side

“When he’s dead,”
she says,
“I’ll finally get that dishwasher.”
“And when she’s dead,”
he says,
“I’ll knock a pass-thru to the kitchen.”

Either could have what they want now
but these are little improvements
they can look forward to
as if one day
the end of the world
could have a bright side
like that trip to Europe
after the dog dies. mjh


There could be an upside to death, at least, for the survivors.

Update 2012: She got her dishwasher and he got a counter far better than a pass-through and nobody had to die, yet.
