A man returns from a visit to the doctor and tells his wife the horrific news, the doctor has told him that he has only 24 hours to live.
With this in mind, the man does what any number of other men would do in his position and asks his wife if they can have sex.
Being a good wife, she agrees and they make love until it’s time for lunch.
About six hours later, the husband goes to his wife and says, “Sweatheart, you know I now have only 18 hours to live. Could we please do it one more time?”
His wife agrees, and they do it again.
Later that evening, as the man gets into bed, he looks at his watch and realizes that he now has only 8 hours left to live.
He touches his wife on the shoulder, and asks, “Honey, please… just one more time before I die”.
She says, “Of course, Dear”, and they make love for the third time.
After this session, the wife is exhausted, she rolls over and falls asleep.
The man, however, worried about his impending death, tosses and turns, until he’s down to just 4 hours left to live.
He taps his wife on the shoulder again nd she slowly comes round from a deep sleep.
“Honey, I have only 4 more hours left to live. Do you think we could…”
At this point the wife cuts him short, sits up in bed and says to him, “Listen! I have to get up in the morning. You don’t!”
