	The Eccentric Spinster's Strange Request

An elderly spinster visited a lawyer to see about having a will prepared.
The lawyer's first question was, "What do you have in assets and how would
you like them to be distributed?" She replied, "Besides my house and
furniture, I have $400,000 in my savings account.  As I've told you, I've
lived a reclusive life, people have hardly ever noticed me, so I'd like them
to notice when I pass on. I'd like to provide $350,000 for my funeral."

The lawyer remarked, "Well, for $350,000 you can have a funeral that will
certainly be noticed!  But what would you like to do with the remaining
$50,000?" The spinster replied, "I've lived alone my entire life, and in
fact I've never slept with a man.  I'd like you to use the $50,000 to
arrange for a man to sleep with me before I die." "This is a very unusual
request," the lawyer said, "but I'll see what I can do to arrange it."

That evening, the lawyer told his wife about the eccentric spinster and her
request. After thinking about how much she could do around the house with
$50,000, she got her husband to agree to provide the service himself.  The
next morning, she drove him to the spinster's house and waited while he went
into the house. She waited for an hour, then two, but her husband didn't
come out. So she blew the car horn. Shortly, the upstairs bedroom window
opened, the lawyer stuck his head out and yelled, "Pick me up tomorrow,
she's going to let the County bury her!"
