A while back I received yet another email with a blank form to fill out...a living will.

Euwwww! I thought. But being the curious soul that I am, I read it. Loved it. Adjusted it. And here it is.

Living Will
I ,__________________________, being of sound mind and body, do not wish to be kept alive indefinitely by artificial means. Under no circumstances should my fate be put in the hands of pinhead politicians who couldn't pass ninth-grade biology if their lives depended on it, or lawyers/ doctors interested in simply running up the bills. If a reasonable amount of time passes and I fail to ask for at least one of the following:

1. A handfull of people (you know who you are) ______
2. Diet Coke ______
3. A phone call from my children ______
4. Lunch with Bubbie Channah ______
5. A walk down any Jerusalem street______
6. Meurav Yerushalmy(Jerusalem Mixed Grill, mmm)______
7. A good book to read ______
8. Pecan Pie ______
9. To talk about the book I am writing______
10. A cup of coffee ______
11. Chocolate ______
12. A hug_______

It should be presumed that I won't ever get better. When such a determination is reached, I hereby instruct my appointed person and attending physicians to pull the plug, reel in the tubes and call it a day.

Shavuah tov...

Have a great day...stay safe...and thanks for dropping in.
