I am on Southern Living’s Hit List

My husband was sorting through his 83-year-old mother’s bills yesterday, and suddenly said, “Hmm. This is sad.”
“What is?”
“Well, this is a bill from Southern Living Magazine, and it lists all of the gift subscriptions Mom has given to other people. A lot of people.  Everyone on the list is dead.”
“Wow, that is sad.”
He started reading the list out loud, and then paused.
“Oh, except you of course.”

Of course, this doesn’t necessarily mean that Southern Living is plotting to kill me.

It could mean that his mom is out to get me, instead.

If I die after taste-testing a new apple tart recipe, don’t be so quick to ascribe it to my miserable skills in the kitchen.

  1. That rings a bell! I work for a catalog/internet company, and last year we did a little survey of people who bought gifts from us two years ago, but not last year. Twenty percent of them were dead! I guess our subscriber base is a little old.

  2. That’s kind of funny but not funny!

  3. Too funny! Be afraid… be very afraid…

  4. His Mom’s still not paying for those subscriptions, is she? 😉

  5. And Monty Python’s Holy Grail immediately pops to mind. “I’m not dead yet!”

  6. Aww, that’s kinda funny and depressing!

  7. Is that sort of your mother-in-laws way of saying “Three Days”?

  8. LOL!!! Love how you write about anything and everything…
