One man's boon

"In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move." - Douglas Adams


Bob prayed that he would get an earlier appointment with his specialist.

He couldn't wait for a month - he just had to know what was wrong with him.

Hopefully he would be blessed with an earlier appointment

Suddenly, the phone rang.

"Hello. I'm calling from the hospital. Can I speak to Bob please?"
"Yes, this is Bob"
"I'd like to inform you that a specialist appointment slot has just opened up tomorrow at 4pm. Can you make it?"
"Yeah, sure. That's great news. Thank you"

As he put down the phone, Bob knew that he'd been blessed. He was grateful.

(one hour earlier)

The phone rang.

"Hello. I'm calling from the hospital. Can I speak to George please? This is about his upcoming appointment"
"George. But he's... dead. He was eaten by a lion while on safari in Africa."
"I'm very sorry to hear that Sir..."

The nurse put down the phone and marked the late George's appointment slot as free.

His death was unfortunately, but now his slot had to be given to someone else.

(inspired by a true story)
