Power of Attorney

I cannot tell you how many times I heard the question posed to me, “do you have a living will?” “do you have a power of attorney?”

Well, the other day when my mother accompanied me to my scan, the woman behind the desk asked me again.

Woman: Do you have a living will?

Me: No oh; not yet.

Mother: You don’t have a living will?

Me: What?

Woman: Do you have a power of attorney?

Me: No

Mother: You don’t have a power of attorney either?

Me: Are you asking my sister as well?

Mother: Well, no oh.

Me: So you think I need a power of attorney and a living will? Is there a reason I need one but my sibling does not?

Mother: It’s just that, everyone should have one; I have one.

Me: You’re old!
