Old Max Greenberg lies on his deathbed.
He asks, “Is my wife Sara here?” “Yes,” says Sara. “I’m here with you!” “Are my children here?” “Yes, Max, your sons and your daughters are all here!” “Are my grandchildren here?” “Yes, all of the grandchildren are here. Max, your entire family is here with you!”
Then Max Greenberg lifts his head one last time and asks, “So why is the light on in the kitchen?”
