Question of the Day, 68

"Do you swear on me and the Babies! and everything, and Swear to God, and stick a needle in your eye?"
-- Sweetie.

Sweetie knows how to extract a promise. This week, we're going to refinance our mortgage and there was a small holdup that delayed it. Sweetie asked me the above to get me to promise that I would, definitely, call the bank the next day.

I pointed out to her that the last part was probably unnecessary, as if I swore to the rest and didn't call the bank, everyone and everything would be dead, and I'd be in Hell... and did I really, at that point, need to also poke myself in the eye?
