Nasrudin was very old and lying on his bed, about to die at any moment. He said to his wife, "Why are you dressed in black and looking so sorrowful? Go put on your finest clothes, fix up your hair, and smile!"

"Nasrudin," she tearfully responded, "how can you ask me to do such a thing? You are ill, and I am dressed like this out of respect for you."

"Yes," Nasrudin said, "and that's why I made my request. The Angel of Death will be here soon, and if he sees you all dressed up and beautiful, maybe he'll leave me and take you instead."
And after giving a little laugh, Nasrudin died.
