Healthy living

A couple, 85 years old, had been married for sixty years. They were not rich, but they managed to get by because they watched their pennies. Both were in very good health, largely due to the wife's insistence on healthy foods and exercise for the last decade. But one day, even their good health did not help when they went on one of their rare vacations and the airplane crashed.

They reached the Pearly Gates, and St. Peter escorts them inside.

He takes them first to a beautiful mansion, furnished in gold and fine silks, with a fully stocked kitchen and a waterfall in the master bathroom. A maid is hanging their favourite clothes in the closet. "Welcome to heaven," says St. Peter, smiling. "This will be your home from now on."

"But how much is all this going to cost?" asks the old man.

"Why, nothing. Remember, this is your reward in heaven."

The old man looks out the window. Right beside the house he sees a championship golf course, finer and more beautiful than any ever built on earth. But what are the green fees?

"This is heaven," says St. Peter again. "You can play for free, every day."

Next the three of them go to the clubhouse: which has all ready and laid out before them a lavish buffet lunch with every imaginable cuisine, from seafood to steaks to exotic deserts, and fountains of all different kinds of beverages. "Don't even ask," says St. Peter to the man. "This is heaven, it is all free for you to enjoy."

With a nervous glance at his wife, the old man asks quickly: "Where are the low fat and low cholesterol foods, and the decaffeinated tea?"

"That is the best part!" exclaims St. Peter. "You can eat and drink as much as you like of whatever you like, and you will never get fat or sick. This is Heaven!"

"No gym to work out at?"

"Not unless you want to."

"No testing my sugar or blood pressure or ..."

"Never again. All you do here is enjoy yourself."

The old man turns to his wife with a glare: "You and your stupid bran muffins. We could have been here ten years ago!"
