My wife and I were driving down the highway having a somewhat rambling conversation. One part of the conversation touched on the need to update our wills and post death instructions (organ donation, cremation, etc.). The conversation then shifted onto other topics (how long we were expected to stay at our daughter's place, plans for the rest of the week, etc.). Then,
Wife - "You can do whatever you want with my body."
Me – Nearly driving off the road.
Wife - "No. No. I meant after I'm dead and cremated."
Me – Three days later, I am still getting a chuckle out of this example of our gaps in communication skills.
Has this ever happened to you? One of you makes an "out-of-the-blue" comment that the other total misconstrues (hopefully with comic results)?
