If I Died
A wife asks her husband,
—Honey, if I died, would you remarry?
—After a considerable period of grieving, I guess I would. We all need companionship.
—If I died and you remarried, would she live in this house?
—We’ve spent a lot of money getting this house just the way we want it. I’m not going to get rid of my house. I guess she would.
—If I died and you remarried, and she lived in this house, would she sleep in our bed?
—Well, the bed is brand new, and it cost us $2,000. It’s going to last a long time, so I guess she would.
—If I died and you remarried, and she lived in this house and slept in our bed, would she use my golf clubs?
—Oh, no,—the husband replies—She’s left-handed.
