The first three patrons at the library thought Sid, the town drunk, was just snoozing. It was almost noon before someone noticed he hadn’t moved.
Yesterday, he had his annual physical and the doctor told him to quit drinking – he was killing himself.
“Can’t do Doc!”
“Well, it’s going to kill you if you don’t stop.” Doc wrote a note on a prescription pad and handed it to him.
When the police got to the library, they found the note in Sid’s hand.
“ 1. Stop drinking or
2. Die. ” the doctor had written.
Sid had circled number two.
