It came in the mail today. Emblazoned across the front of the envelope, "Here's that second chance you hoped for!". It came from an insurance company. I was suspicious from the get-go.
It was an offer to sell me some life insurance! It started, "Why didn't I get more life insurance when I was younger . . . and when it was cheaper?" Yes, it was in bold green!
I couldn't help laughing out loud and reading the ridiculous thing loudly to the neighborhood. It was over 95 degrees out, with high humidity, so I had a very small audience, mostly squirrels, and my dog, Martin.
I did not buy more insurance when I was younger because I could not afford it then. Since I lived this long, it proved to be a wise lack of investment. All of those years not paying for that insurance! I feel silly about the stuff I did buy. Wasted money so far.
My mother always said life insurance is a bet that you are going to die before your spend too much on the insurance. The insurance I have is the sort that pays you back after a while, like an investment, if you don't die and use it up. I can justify something I can use later. The last thing I am looking for right now is more life insurance.
But a good laugh? Thank you Mutual of Omaha!
