The cardiologist was just threading 25ft of tiny Dyno-Rod plastic piping into my coronary arteries when he asked: “How much would a £1m life insurance policy cost me?”
“Just concentrate on what you’re doing, doctor,” I said. “Right now, the only life insurance policy likely to be paying out is mine.”
“You’re totally normal,” he said.
I was flattered — I’d never been called that before.
He asked me if I wanted a photo of my arteries.
“No,” I said. “I’ve still got the one from my colonoscopy.”
