Maxine's Will

I, MAXINE , 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:

Glass of wine
Cold Beer
Chicken fried steak
cream gravy
Mexican food
French fries
ice cream
cup of tea
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.

I loved this. Had to copy and forward it to my mother-in law as she loves Maxine. Thanks!

You can close your eyes to the things you do not want to see, but you can't close your heart to the things you do not want to feel.

Didn't take much reading between the lines. Maxine further reinforces my belief that chocolate is a food group. Long live Maxine! Long live chocolate!

LOL! I want to be Maxine when I grow up (or old whatever comes first) and not care what people think---Ha!!

The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.
