Aviva on Safety

Talking about a friend serving in Afghanistan:

Aviva: Does he have kids?

Ben: No.

Aviva: Well that's not safe.

Ben: Why?

Aviva: Because if he dies it can't go on.

Ben: What can't go on?

Aviva: That kind of person -- that grow of relation. But if he had kids, it could go on.

That's an interesting take... I am so unsafe! :-)

whoa. so according to Aviva, it's safe for me to die now?

It's kind of an old-testament kind of safety...

just out of curiosity, how many children is Aviva planning on having?

Posted by: susan at April 12, 2007 02:56 AM

I checked. She says four, two boys and two girls.

If this comes to define "safe sex" for the 21st century, we are going to have a problem with over population. :o) But the people in charge of the AHV will be thrilled.

Does he have nieces or nephews?

Good thought. I will check with Aviva whether nieces and nephews count for the grow of relation.

For non-Swiss readers, the AHV Susan mentions is like US Social Security, and the Swiss, like much of Europe, are running out of people.
