The New Living Will
I received this New Living Will from my friendly CPA. It's one of those topics that none of us wants to think about, but probably needs to look atand discuss with loved ones...soon.
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:
______a Bloody Mary
______a Scotch on the rocks
______a Vodka and Tonic
______the remote control
______a Bowl of ice cream
______a Southern Living Magazine
______my hair product
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.
