I love this tactic and am going to introduce it to my family. It has been true for me that since dealing with serious healthcare issues I want to jump to the ending and skip the unnecessary extra worry of getting through the story. You have articulated that so well. Thanks

What a great rule, Wendy, and thank you for sharing it. It's great to have verbage spelled out (I just did something similar in my latest blog post, re: offering advice to a friend with cancer).

Hope all is well with you!


Last year my son called starting with "Don't worry, Mom, I'm okay" after a traffic accident. If he had started with "the car was totalled" (which it was) my reaction would have been so different since thoughts would have raced to what shape he was in.
