A middle-aged man was visibly shaken when his doctor advised that he had only six months to live because of a terminal disease that was detected during a recent physical check-up. The doctor suggested that he should get his "house in order," make sure his will was current and ensure all final arrangements were in place for the funeral. He should then make plans to enjoy what might be left of his life, to the fullest. "What will you do for the last six months?" asked the doctor. His patient thought for a few minutes then replied, "I think I'll go and live with my Mother-in-law." Surprised by the answer, the doctor asked, "Of all people, why in the would you want to live with your Mother-in-law?"
"Because that way it'll be the longest six months of my life!"
