You’re Going to Die
A man went to the doctor after weeks of symptoms. The doctor examined him carefully, then called the patients wife into his office. “Your husband is suffering from a rare form of anemia. Without treatment, hell be dead in a few weeks. The good news is, it can be treated with proper nutrition.”
“You will need to get up early every morning and fix your husband a hot breakfastpancakes, bacon and eggs, the works. Hell need a home-cooked lunch every day, and then an old-fashioned meat-and-potato dinner every evening. It would be especially helpful if you could bake frequently. Cakes, pies, homemade breadthese are the things that will allow your husband to live.
“One more thing. His immune system is weak, so its important that your home be kept spotless at all times. Do you have any questions?” The wife had none.
“Do you want to break the news, or shall I?” asked the doctor.
“I will,” the wife replied.
She walked into the exam room. The husband, sensing the seriousness of his illness, asked her, “Its bad, isnt it?”
She nodded, tears welling up in her eyes. “Whats going to happen to me?” he asked.
With a sob, the wife blurted out, “The doctor says youre gonna die!”
