The Sonia Show: Unplugged


Yeah, so, now that we are married, David and I had to have a life and death conversation.

Me: “Hey, so, listen, this is important: If anything should happen to me, and I’m in the hospital and I’m hooked up to a bunch of machines … Don’t unplug me. Don’t EVER unplug me.”

David: “HA! Wait, seriously?”

Me: “Yes, for all we know being plugged into those machines is awesome. Don’t unplug me. I don’t want to die. Don’t EVER unplug me.”

David: “OK.”

Me: “Also, I won’t want you to move on with your life. I will want you to visit me every day.”

David: “OK.”

Me: “If someone says to you, ‘Sonia would want you to be happy and move on with your life,’ then that person doesn’t know me. Don’t listen to them. I don’t want you to be happy. Don’t leave me.”

David: “Yes, this is perfectly reasonable.”

Me: “What do you want me to do if anything should happen to you?”

David: “I want you to keep my head in a jar like on ‘Futurama.’”

Me: “Consider it done.”


Author: The Sonia Show

I'm a writer/mocker/goober/mother in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, podcast, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.

  1. You crack me up, girl. For serious. 🙂

  2. I’m LOLZing over here!

  3. I feel the same way – totally. No unplugging, no moving on, no nothing. You know, in sickness and health and whatnot … that’s what happens when you marry a big dumb coma-risk like me. Sorry.

Leave a comment, you guys. It's fun!
