A man had been feeling sick for quite some time and finally decided to see
a doctor. The doctor came out and told the patient that he has some bad
news to share. "You are going to die," he said.
"When will I die?" the patient asked.
"Ten," the doctor replied.
The patient, wondering, asked,
"Ten what? Years, months, days ...? Tell me doc, I gotta know."
"Nine," the doctor said.
