So, we got an enrollment option form from the company my husband works for.  Longterm care benefits to cover us and our four parents (who are all close to or over 80)  for five years for under $20/month total?  No having to prove we’re healthy enough to sign up if we do it right now?  Hey.

And then the conversation went to being about me.  I tried to deflect it.  Dontwannagothere.   The coverage could be done at home or in a facility, and I was asking, you wouldn’t want that five year clock to start ticking while you could still take care of things at home, would you?

“Yes, but c’mon, where would you rather be living if you could?”

I smiled at him… (wait for it…)   And then, with a look of utter innocence, answered him sweetly (along with a ‘you-so-set-yourself-up-for-this’ grin), “Why, where my yarn is.  Of course!”

and I bet that was the first time he heard that one wasn’t it– but everyone who reads here will totally understand that thought 😀

News flash–woman uses long term care benefits to establish a nursing/home yarn shop where knitting fanatics can becared for in their natural habitat. Said one resident–balls of natural yarn are so much more comfortable to sleep on than those ridiculous hospital beds. And somebody always has just the needles I need.

Of Course! Seems plain to me!

Take the insurance! With the “excitement” I’ve been going through, I wish we had it for my parents!

Seems quite resonable to me. Stay with the yarn, so when you have visitors they will have warm things to wear:)

Don’t you just love it when they fall into your hands so easily? Great answer!
