More Hypotheticals

If you leave this board

(Yes, those are nails.)

laying on the floor like this

then your husband might step on the board and the nail might go into his foot far enough that he has to reach down and pull the board (and the nail) off (out) of his foot.

And he might have to go to the ER where, thankfully he works so they know him and they don’t make him wait for ten years, and get one of the doctors there to clean it out and give him a Tetanus shot so he doesn’t get lock-jaw.

And you might feel really bad and really guilty.

If, however, your husband leaves this board

laying on the floor like this and he steps on it.  You’ll still feel really bad.

But you’ll avoid the guilt.

    I hope it’s option B for your sake! And that his foot feels better soon.

    And then you get the added bonus of being able to laugh.

    Augh!!! I’m in pain!

    Assuming it is option B. Glad you are not guilty.

    Option B. Has to be Option B.

    And I stepped on a nail (rusty and all) when I was about 9 years old.
    Ouch, indeed. Holy ouch!

    Are you saying you didn’t give him the, “Glad it was you not the kid”, or “I told you that would happen and you deserve it”, or “Count your blessings it didn’t sink into my foot” lectures?

    You are a good wonderful kind sweet wife.

    however, when the husband is spraying insulation on the ceiling and has on goggles that he can’t see through, and thinks there’s nothing on the floor, it’s all good and fun right?
