We finish the 500 piece jigsaw puzzle with great satisfaction. Really, it was harder than you'd think for two intelligent girls — it took us two days, but we were utterly determined to get it done. My friend looks at me across the table and asks, How do you think we're going to die? As I roar with laughter at the unexpected question, she says, Did I actually say that? and laughs herself. Once we're composed, I say, All I know is it will be horrible or embarrassing for me. I'll probably get run over by the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile.
