" Seriously tell me", my husband asked me yesterday morning, "isnt it about time we set a 'threshold' for number of deaths in our maid's family? I am sure someone has come up with figures for an upper limit for number of deaths/ maid household?How many relatives have to die before I start suspecting the maid of homicide?".
The maid has been very consistent with details, death always come a-knockin' Saturday evening (which merits taking Sunday and Monday off), it is sudden, the dearly-soon-to be-departed goes to bed and never gets up. Just saying.
We have seen seven deaths in the last one year. One more and the Vishwal Bharadwaj school of thought suggests the gloves can finally come off.
