Sedgy, its been some time since the love of your life passed, so I feel comfortable enough to ask you this.
What would SHE say about you giving up the jigsaw puzzles?
My wife and I enjoy working on jigsaw puzzles. I don't think that "enjoy" is the right word. We enjoy the competition of trying to out do one another. She always starts them. I work on them some, but never finish them. I leave that for her. I have to be careful not to get too close to finishing it to avoid being accused of being patronizing.
So now I have to ask myself, "Would I quit doing crossword puzzles if my wife were to pass before I do?"
Probably, because I never start them, and I never finish them, and I would not have her around to gloat over for finding that one piece she had been looking for next to forever.
What would my wife say from the Great Beyond if I gave up jigsaw puzzles in her absence?
She'd say, "Well Stupid, you weren't very good at them anyway, why, you weren't ever able to finish any of them."
