My friend thinks I'm morbid

My friend is appalled because I freely talk about death.
  1. I joke with my wife that I've made a deal that I will go first. (She can go 30 seconds after me, but I'm first.)
  2. My wife and I know what we will do if the other one dies. (She'll move in with her parents, and I'll go live with my sister.)

I guess it's all because I'm not afraid of it. I know it's coming and I know there is something better on the other side of it.

That said, I really don't want to leave my wife alone and I don't want to be left alone, but I know it's just part of ... wait for it ...

The Circle of Life. (There's your Lion King reference for the day.)

You're welcome.

the husband and i always fight over who gets to go first- i believe that i should die before him. i don't want to be here without him. i get what you are saying.

Truth be told, I think I would eventually venture out on my own, but I would sell our home here and move to live with my parents first while I figured everything out. (Maybe eventually move next door...) That said, I will be very upset with you if I ever have to do that.
