I recently wrote to my brother in law to remind him that he should be getting their P/As for personal care in place. He wrote back:

While I was watching football this weekend, my wife and I got into a
conversation about life and death, and the need for living wills.

During the course of the conversation I told her that I never wanted to
exist in a vegetative state, dependent on some machine and taking fluids
from a bottle.

She got up, unplugged the TV, and dumped out my beer.

. . . Sometimes it's tough being married to a smart ass.

Speaking of living wills, this was posted on the BBQ Fools list, and I thought it was pretty good:

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:

______ Cold Beer
______ Glass of Wine
______ Top-shelf Liquor
______ BBQ Ribs
______ Grilled Steak
______ Pizza
______ Tacos
______ French Fries
______ Ice Cream
______ Chocolate
______ TV Remote
______ Sex

It should be presumed that I won't ever get any 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.

Signed and Witnessed this Day of Our Lord _____________ 20__
