I had a talk with my 2 adult daughters about a very serious matter. I told them that I did not want to be buried when I died, I wanted to be cremated so as not to take up more space on this planet. I expected tears or one of them to try to convince me not to do it. Instead, they both were fine with it.
However I told them I wanted to donate my organs to medicine. Instead of disagreeing with me, one of my daughters compassionately said: “dad, face it, your organs are pretty much worthless.” And then they proceeded to go down my body from my eyes to my prostate!
“Your eyes aren’t of much value because they don’t work very well. Your lungs are completely worthless because they are mostly paralyzed. Bladder? Forget about it, after all the urinary tract infections you’ve had? And your kidneys must be in bad shape because they have been dealing with a dysfunctional bladder for 4 years. Your liver? Dad, you have been taking 20 pills a day for 40 years. You’re lucky your liver is functioning at all. And your prostate? You’ve got to be kidding!”
I started the discussion worried that they would be depressed but by the time we were done, I was the one who was depressed! Kids. All you can do is love them because you can’t sell them on eBay!
