1.42. A woman came home with a bag of groceries, got
the mail, and walked into the house. On the way to the kitchen, she went
through the living room and looked at her husband, who had blown his brains
out. She then continued to the kitchen, put away the groceries, and made
dinner. (partial JM wording; from How Come?)
1.42 answer: The husband killed himself a while ago; it’s his ashes in
an urn on the mantelpiece that the wife looks at. It’s debatable whether
this belongs in section 2 for double meanings.
