    An elderly Scotsman lay dying in his bed.

    While suffering the agonies of impending death,
    he suddenly smelled the
    aroma of his favorite cookies wafting up the
    stairs. He gathered his
    remaining strength, and lifted himself from the
    bed.

    Leaning on 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 labored breath, he leaned
    against the door-frame,
    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 favorite cookies,
    freshly baked.

    Was it heaven? Or was it one final act of 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 crumpled posture. His
    aged and withered hand
    trembled towards a cookie at the edge of the
    table, when it was suddenly
    smacked by his wife with a spatula.............

    "Buzz off" she said, "they're for the funeral."
