Daily Joke: Man on His Deathbed Asks Friend to Pour Whiskey over His Grave When He Passes Away
Jock McTavish and Jim McGregor were lifelong buddies and brothers. Their friendship dated back all the way to their school days, and their brotherly bond was impossible to break.
However, the two friends shared separate life aspirations and respected each other's choices more than anything. McGregor dreamed of becoming an IT expert, and for him to earn his specialization in the field, he had to settle in New York.
On the other hand, McTavish desired to become a successful banker. Unlike his friend, he didn't have to move to another city to attain his dream job.
Over time, the two friends went their separate ways to achieve their dreams. However, even with the distance between them, they stayed in touch. Oftentimes, McGregor paid his best buddy a visit on weekends and during the holidays.
On Easter evening, McGregor was home for the celebrations and he told his friend that he had fallen for a girl.
"She's kind, honest, loving, and the best girl I've ever come across. I'm so happy, mate!" he exclaimed. "Why don't you consider dating someone too? I think you should think about it, and then, maybe, you won't feel so alone."
McTavish smiled at his lifelong friend and nodded a little. However, it was easier said than done in his case, even though he wished for a happily-ever-after.
McGregor left after Easter and didn't return for a long time. The two friends talked on the phone, but the calls were not so frequent anymore. McTavish worried that maybe his friend was occupied with too much and had forgotten all about him.
Unfortunately, his health worsened so much that he was unable to recover. The doctors said he had a rare, incurable cancer. Soon, McTavish was on his deathbed and the news reached his lifelong buddy who came rushing to see him. He sat vigil by his best friend's side, comforting him.
"I'm so sorry I couldn't come and help you in time, but you'll be okay mate," said McGregor.
With his last breath, McTavish leaned over and whispered to his friend, "There's a bottle of fine whiskey under my bed. When I am gone, pour it over my grave. Promise me you'll do it, man."
McGregor went silent for a moment, and replied, "Aye Jock, I'll do it...But would you mind if I passed it through my kidneys first?"
The friends were so close that one couldn't let the other one die without sharing a drink!
