A Ragtag Daily Word Prompt

Dear M,


It was summer and we were standing on the deck talking about this and that.

You mentioned that you don’t have life insurance because you’re too smart to set yourself up. You thought you were so clever.

As you continued to talk about your brilliance, I had a fleeting thought.

I don’t need your life insurance. If you were to accidentally die all of my problems would be solved. And that was more valuable to me than money.

While that was my thought, I was by no means plotting your demise. I just wanted to be free. As it turned out I was able to come up with a strategic exit plan. I left.

So, who is the clever one now?
