The Curse

The Curse 1

Being a strict old man who can quote the bible on a whim can have it’s advantages.  You can get your wife and your family to do basically anything you want, for fear of your wrath.  You can live like a king, and when you have something to do, you can tell everyone to shut the hell up, and they’ll listen to you.  While that might sound like a pretty sweet gig, it can also cause your wife to get fed up and fool around with the hairy dude that’s putting in your well, and can cause a meteorite to fall from the sky and smash up your farm and give you The Curse.  I’d say the cons outweigh the pros on this one…
