For those of you familiar with the TV show, Cash Cab this is a shout out question. Here’s some background if you haven’t seen the show. Unsuspecting passengers get into a cab only to find they are on a quiz show and if they don’t answer the questions, they get dumped on the street. Passengers/contestants can ask for help if they don’t know the answer to a question. They can ask friends or even people on the street to help them get the right answer. It is nice to get help when you feel clueless and that’s exactly how I feel today. I have a serious question and I’ve got a hunch that guessing wrong could be a big problem so let me know what you think. Here’s the situation.
Was it innocent TV watching? 0r. . . .
Yesterday I was working hard on a new post for Coot’s while my wife was busy elsewhere. Finally I got the post all finished and decided to take a break so I looked for my wife. In the TV room I found her deeply engrossed in a TV show. Normally I wouldn’t pay attention to my wife’s afternoon viewing but as I moved past, I heard a voice say ‘evil women’. I turned to see a woman injecting arsenic into her husband’s arm. Riveted I stayed to learn that this woman had told her husband that the Doctor had advised this treatment and, trusting soul that he was, he believed her, It seems that this was husband number three and the widow would quickly find a replacement. This evil woman was only one of many in a marathon lasting all day and even into the night.
At first I was amused, but then…
You don’t see many shows focusing on killer women. I watched for a time too As I continue to think about this program and my wife’s interest, I am getting a bit concerned. Was this show just a diversion for my wife or was she doing research? I thought that we were getting along fine lately making up for some conflicts earlier in our marriage. Now I’m wondering if I am deluding myself. Maybe everything isn’t so rosy as I thought. Should I be worried that my wife is researching ways to put me out of the picture? I was extra nice to her last night just to be safe but in the meantime I’m being very cautious.
So here is where I need some help Am I being paranoid and delusional or merely cautious and concerned? How can I be sure that my wife doesn’t plan to do me in? And what should I do in the meantime to show her that I’m worth more alive than dead, There is a lot at stake here. I don’t want to get this wrong..
