Old Couple

An old man lay on his deathbed with his wife by his side. He whispers to her, “Mabel, I can’t believe it’s almost over, and here you are, right by my side as always.”

She says, “I’ve always been there for you, dear.”

He nods. “When I lost the business and went bankrupt, you were there. When the bank foreclosed on our house, you were there. When the government came after me for ten years’ worth of back taxes, you were there. When the doctor told me I had six months to live, you were there. Hey, Mabel, you know something?”

“What?”

“I’ve been giving it some thought here, and you’re a goddamn jinx!”
