Helen always worried about Max dieing,
mostly because she was dependent on his social security,
though she loved him very much.
Max assured her she’d do fine with the old diner.
Eventually he had passed away,
and Helen was still getting by.
One afternoon she closed early to restock the freezer.
She wanted to make sure she was keeping
her dead husband well hidden from Social Security
so she could keep collecting his monthly check.
