Living Will

I think this is the best living will form that I've seen, it's easy to understand, and it makes perfect sense as well.

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 posturing politicians, religious nuts, or lawyers/doctors interested in simply running up the bills or protecting their butts from malpractice suits.

If a reasonable amount of time passes and I fail to ask for at least one
of the following:

______a Bloody Mary,
______a Margarita,
______a glass of wine,
______a beer,
______a steak
______Lobster, shrimp, or salmon
______The remote control,
______Chocolate, or
______Sex in some form

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 go get a beer.

That is the best living will ever.

Babsbitchin said...

Ophelia, sorry! I'd deleted my blog in a fit of rage like a dumbass. Thanks for caring enough to come looking. True pal!

Babsbitchin said...

snooze, good to hear from you. Yes, and I should have a clause if you DO WANT to be hooked up on life support and the request, as my husband told me, he wanted hooked up with extension cords hooked to a generator, just in case the power went down. There'd be no getting rid of his ass, huh?
