Here's a snippet of an actual conversation I had with hubby yesterday morning:
ME: Why do we have so many computers?
HUBBY: What do you mean?
ME: You have three computers. I have two computers. That's a total of five computers for just two people.
HUBBY: You should see how many computers Luke has. (Luke is our 29-year-old son who lives in Seattle and worked at Microsoft as a software developer before he started his own company.)
ME: Yeah, well, computers are part of his job. He can write them off on his tax returns. We can't write off our computers. In fact, we don't write anything off. Why is that?
HUBBY: Well. . . we "write off" into the sunset.
