A man has been ill for some time, has had tests and is now at the doctor’s for the results.
“I’m afraid I have some very bad news for you. You only have a few months to live”
“Doctor, isn’t there anything I can do?”
“You can avoid all fatty and spicy food. Don’t touch alcohol. Give up tea and coffee and drink only water. Avoid chocolate and anything with sugar in. Go to bed at 10.00 each night and don’t do anything that gets you in the least bit excited.”
“Will that make me live longer?”
“No, but it will seem longer”
