when the woman's doctor says she has a heart condition that could kill
at any time. She is to avoid stress, eat right, and never, ever have
again -- the strain would be too much.
The couple reluctantly try to live by these rules. Both get really
over time, however, and the husband decides he'd better sleep
on the couch to guard against temptation.
This works for a few weeks, until late one night when they meet each
on the stairs -- she's coming downstairs, he's heading up.
"Honey, I have a confession to make," the woman says, her voice
"I was about to commit suicide."
"I'm glad to hear it, sweetie," the man says, "Because I was just
upstairs to kill you!"
