Subject: Just to put your mind at rest?

I've been asked if the statement, in my proposed letter is true, i.e. "That I don't have much longer to live".

The answer is:

1. I have no idea how much longer I've got ... any more than anyone else has. I may fall under a bus tomorrow, of course.

2. I don't even have a Doctor ... since I discovered Homoeopathy. I've been 'struck off my local GP's list' because I wouldn't do what they said, and took no notice of them. My 'medical check-ups' comprise:
(a) Waking up in the morning (that's a good test!)
(b) Asking myself if I need a cup of tea (another good test)
(c) Asking myself if I need to go to the loo (excellent test)
(d) Being able to get out of bed (the final test)
(e) Additionally ... being able to cart my shopping ... round from Vivien's house ... and up 4 flights of stairs (ultimate test).

3. The last paragraph has been adjusted to:

Perhaps I should point out, for your further information, that my Doctor has advised me I do not have much longer to live. In fact, if I take his advice, I may not even have time to finish this letter. I therefore suggest that the repayment period should be as short as possible, within reason. Obviously if I choose to reject my Doctor’s advice, I may very well have quite few good years still within me. I’m currently in the process of debating this aspect but, just to be on the safe side, perhaps you should consider back-dating the Paying-In Slips to (say) about this time last year?



... and that's how I will probably send it ... next week.

It's all a joke ... designed to confuse.
