My good friend Mark Twain died Thursday April 21, 1910.  I was at his deathbed.

“You’re not supposed to be here,” said Mark.

“Why not?” I asked.

“Because it’s 1910, and you haven’t been born yet,” he said.

“Not being born yet never stopped my imagination,” I said.

“Good point,” he said.  “Okay, you can stay if you promise to write about my death 106 years from now.”

“I promise,” I said.
