Crazy Busy

Ever have one of those days when everything unexpected happens at once?  On the downhill slide of one of those.  So, here is a joke that alludes to the thorn in my side:
In a dark and hazy room, peering into a crystal ball, the fortune teller delivered grave news:
"There's no easy way to tell you this, so I'll just be blunt. Prepare yourself to be a widow. Your husband will die a violent and horrible death this year."
Visibly shaken, the young woman stared at the mystic's lined face, then at the single flickering candle, then down at her hands.
She took a few deep breaths to compose herself and to stop her mind racing. She simply had to know.
She met the fortune teller's gaze, steadied her voice and asked, "Will I be acquitted?"
