I believe her story, don’t you? She was paring an apple in bed and began tickling her husband with the knife before he sat up abruptly and the knife sank into his abdomen.
This husband was a pretty naive sort I think. If I took a sharp knife into the boudoir and started paring an apple the Man would probably make a speedy exit, convinced I was looking for an excuse to ‘accidentally’ plunge the blade into him too!
I wonder how many times the words “playfully started to tickle” and “with the point of the knife” have been used in the same sentence? Not often I suspect.
After I did the draft of this post I found this news article on the Herald-Sun website and just had to add it in.
A Thai senator shot his ex-wife by accident with a gun he had on the table during dinner. Yeah, right… ‘accidentally shot’ and ‘ex-wife’ in the same sentence…. uh huh….
