I've got a dead-person crush on Suzanne Pleshette, best known for her role as Emily Hartley on The Bob Newhart Show. Today I stumbled across this email she supposedly sent to a friend of hers when she and her third husband, Newhart's Tom Poston, were both seriously ill in the last years of their lives:
I lost all of my hair
I look like shit
Tom has a catheter in his dickie
We have round-the-clock nurses, a walker and a wheelchair
I'm saving a fortune on bikini waxes
Tom has lost all peripheral vision so he doesn't know
At his age we're just glad he has a lump in his pants
We're madly in love
And we feel lucky.
AIN'T LIFE GRAND!!!!!!!
What a woman. If I could only travel back in time . . .
Oh, and my fiancee is behind me 100 percent on this, I assure you.
