INTRODUCTION Today’s Special: A Healthy Obsession
A man wasn’t feeling well so he went to the doctor.
After examining him, the doctor took his wife aside and said, “Your husband has a very weak heart. I am afraid he won’t live much longer unless you treat him like a king and wait on him hand and foot so he doesn’t strain himself.”
On the way home, the husband turned to his wife and asked, “What did the doctor say?”
“Well,” replied his wife. “He said it doesn’t look like you’re going to make it.”

But this is the only instance I have ever known of a man signing his name and forgetting to write the letter.”
