"To do what?"
"Don't know. Nothing. Not put a tie on. Get to know my kids properly."
"But how would we earn money?" Kate asked.
"We wouldn't," I replied.
"Then how would we live?"
"Off the redundancy payment."
"How long would that last?"
"If we were sensible, it could last for a year," I replied. "We'd have to move to a smaller house. And sell the Subaru. And the nanny would have to go."
"And what would happen at the end of the year?
"We'd be fucked. All our savings would be gone. I'd be a forgotten, 40-year-old advertising executive who hadn't worked for a year. Unemployable."
"So I get twice the husband, half the income and at the end of the year we'll both have to work in Woolworths?"
Kate thought for a minute. "If we do this, will you be less of an arsehole?"
