Life Insurance

I always thought life insurance was for old people.  

I'm applying for a medical loan with a co-signer and to keep them as free from the responsibility of paying back that loan, I applied for life insurance.  Weird.  

Then I started thinking about how my family would pay expenses of my death if something unfortunate were to happen.  I mean, you'd think I'd be safe and all having already been hit by the bus that everyone seems to use as an example, but you never know.  Despite my weight, I'm in excellent health.  My blood pressure and cholesterol are great, etc. etc. etc.  I don't need life insurance.  Then I think of my mom dying.  I think of looking at the cost of everything and thinking "How in the hell are we going to pay for this"?  Then thinking "How can I think of that right now"?  I think of the payments that the funeral home let us make because Westford's is amazing.  

I don't want my family to ever go through that.  I don't want Kim to ever go through that.  So, I applied for life insurance.  

Let's hope I don't need it for about 65 years, okay?
