Do you know that when you don't answer your cell phone, the one that your wife knows you have clipped to your belt every moment that you are away from home, your sweet wife, who loves you so, imagines that you have been killed in a car accident by a drunk driver, have died from a brain aneurysm, have been robbed and killed at gunpoint, or one of eleven million other possible causes of death have befallen you?
And do you know that if you have one (or heaven forbid, a full 50 percent) of your children with you when you don't answer your cell phone, her level of anguish raises exponentially?
And did you know that if you don't answer your cell phone, and you wife needs to jump in the shower after a hot evening at a softball game, that she will imagine having to wrap her head in a towel to answer the door when the police come to inform her of your demise, something she most definitely does not want to do?
So, do yourself, and your sweet, loving wife a favor -- don't let it happen again.

And, yes, I know I need therapy.
