Two Men Waiting in Line at the Pearly Gates

Most of us have a healthy fear of death. This fear is built into our DNA as a survival instinct in many ways. It has to do with our fear of the unknown in other ways. Death is a subject we don’t really like talking about, just ask any life insurance salesperson, but it’s something we are more than happy to joke about. Humor has a way of somehow making even the most serious subjects seem manageable. In this story, two dead men meet while waiting in line to see St. Peter at the pearly gates when they begin chatting. Soon they both learn something quite interesting about each other.

“How’d you die?” the first man asks the second. “I froze to death,” says the second. “That’s awful, how does it feel to freeze to death?” says the first. “It’s very uncomfortable at first, you get the shakes, and you get pains in all your fingers and toes. But eventually, it’s a very calm way to go. You get numb and you kind of drift off, as if you’re sleeping.”

“How did you die?” says the second. “I had a heart attack,” says the first guy. “You see, I knew my wife was cheating on me, so one day I showed up at home unexpectedly.

I ran up to the bedroom, and found her alone, knitting.

I ran down to the basement, bot no one was hiding there. I ran up to the second floor, but no one was hiding there either.

I ran as fast as I could to the attic, and just as I got there, I had a massive heart attack and died.”

The second man shakes his head. “that’s so ironic,” he says. “What do you mean?” asks the first man.

“If you had only stopped to look in the freezer, we’d both still be alive.”
