And at the end a little bon mot:
A man goes home after a visit to his doctor, walks to the sink and throw all the prescribed pills into it.
"Are you totally crazy?", shouts his wife.
"I know very well what I'm doing", the man says. "The doctor wants to live, the pharmacist wants to live but I want to live AS WELL!"
