A Point to Ponder

Upon careful review of some year-end financial paperwork mailed to the house, my fiscal savvy wife made the following family announcement:
“Children, if anything tragic happens to your mother, I want to let you know that I have x amount of dollars saved in deferred compensation. Each of you will get 50% of what is deferred.”
My stepson lamented, “Mom, I cannot think of anything worse to think about.”
“Oh, I can.” I commented. “I would lose my wife and get nothing.”
