Aaaah, Chocolate!

  1. An elderly Scotsman lay dying in his bed.

    While suffering the agonies of impending death, he suddenly smelled the aroma of his favourite chocolate chip cookies wafting up the stairs.

    He gathered his remaining strength, and lifted himself from the bed.

    Leaning against the wall, he slowly made his way out of the bedroom, and with even greater effort, gripping the railing with both hands, he crawled downstairs.

    With laboured breath he leaned against the doorframe, gazing into the kitchen.

    Were it not for death's agony, he would have thought himself already in heaven, for there, spread out upon waxed paper on the kitchen table were literally hundreds of his favourite chocolate chip cookies.

    Was it heaven ????? Or was it one final act of heroic love from his devoted Scottish wife of sixty years, seeing to it that he left this world a happy man?

    Mustering one great final effort, he threw himself towards the table, landing on his knees in a rumpled posture.

    His parched lips parted, the thought of the wondrous taste of the cookie in his mouth was bringing him back to life.

    The aged and withered hand trembled on its way to a cookie at the edge of the table, when his wife suddenly smacked it with a spatula......

    "Gerroff" she said, "they're for the funeral."
