A devoted wife was taking care of her husband, who had been slipping in and out of a coma for several months.

When he came to his senses, he motioned for her to come near. "You have been with me through all the bad times," he said.

"When I got fired, you were there. When my business failed, you were there. When I got shot, you stayed by my side. When we lost the house, you gave me support. When my health started failing, you were still by my side. You know what?"

"What dear?" she asked gently.

"I think you bring me bad luck."
