Live Forever

Posted by Felix Diamond on April 19, 2007

Odu is an elderly colleague in my former office. We got on very fine. Whenever we ran into each other in the office, I will hail him and say, “Chief Odus, may you live long”, to which he will reply, “Thank you, my brother”. And we will shake hands.

Since he seems to enjoy it, later, I thought it will be a good thing to extend his tenure permanently on this planet. So, I will hail him and say, “Chief Odus, may you live long. Live forever. This time he will reply, “Thank you, my brother. I accepted the first one, but the second one, I don’t. I don’t want to live forever”.

So, one day I asked him, “Chief Odus, why don’t you want to live forever?”. His reply made me burst out laughing. He said, “Do you want me to remain here alone after everybody has died? When they decide to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their sins, you want only me to suffer for their sins?”
