Some Women are Dripping With Diamonds

The time is fast approaching for the closing on my new apartment.

This week I bought homeowners insurance. The agent had to ask me some routine questions. The conversation went something like this.

Agent: "Do you have any fine artwork, heirloom jewelry or rare China?"

THB: No, nothing like that.

Agent: "Do you have any furs?"

THB: Uh, no.

Agent: "Do you plan to store any unattached car engines in your apartment?"

THB: What?

Agent: Sometimes we have people who refurbish old cars, store the engines in their houses, and then try to get homeowners insurance to cover them when their car insurance policies won't.

THB: Oh, I see. Well, no, I have nothing like that.

Agent: Do you have anything else of unusual value?

THB: My most valuable possession is probably my flute.

Agent: Your what?

THB: My flute. You know, like the musical instrument.

Agent: Uh, ok. Do I need to itemize that? That's unusual.

THB: And you were asking about unattached car engines?!?

Agent: You have a point. I'll include it.
