Roy saw his old friend Paul drinking by himself at a bar. They hadn’t seen each other in over a year, and Paul was looking noticeably down.
“Long time no see, Paul,” began Roy. “How are things going?”
Roy looked up at his old friend with sadness in his eyes, and said, “Four months ago, my mother died and left me $10,000.”
“Gee, that’s tough,” Roy replied.
“Then two months ago,” Paul continued, “My father died, leaving me $20,000.”
“Wow. Two parents gone in two months,” Roy commented. “No wonder you look so depressed.”
Pressing on, Paul said, “And last month my aunt died, and left me $15,000.”
“Three close family members lost in three months? Paul, I’m so sorry for your loss!”
“Then this month,” sighed Paul, “absolutely nothing!”
