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

As his good wife moved close to hear her husband’s weak voice, he whispered… “Sophie, you have been with me all through the bad times:

… When my business failed, and we went broke, you never complained, you hung around.
When I had to take a job I hated, and then got fired, who stood by me…you, that’s who!
When you accidentally shot me in that hunting accident, you cried over me for weeks.
When we lost the house in foreclosure, you didn’t leave me.
When cancer invaded my body, you were sill my companion and caregiver; you were there all the time.

You know what Sophie?” ‘What dear?’ she gently asked, smiling as her heart began to fill with warmth.

“You are a fuckin’ jinx!”
