A Different Interpretation

A Different Interpretation

(Another short story from Prickly)

Once upon a time there was a self-proclaimed honest official.  One the day he assumed his important office, he had this printed notice posted right by the door at his reception room.

The declaration of an honest official:

1.       I  have no true desire for money

2.       I do not strive for a prestigious post

3.       I do not fear death

Few days later the subsequent hand written amendments appeared below:

1.       In negligible amounts

2.       Unless its higher than the present  one

3.       However I would like to live as long as possible, if not forever
