    "I am very sorry," said the manager, "We cannot insure1 your life as your parents were not healthy. "
    As the man was leaving the office, depressed4, he met a elerk who had overheard5 the conversation.
    "You must not be so frank6 and tell the truth," said the clerk, "no office will insure you if you speak like that. Use your imagination a little. "

    "Well, young man, how old were your parents when they died?"
    "Mother was ninety-three, and she died from a fall off her bicycle. Father was ninety-eight and he died while he was playing football. "
