The story is told of an eminent professor
who had been endeavouring for some months to arrange for the visit of
one of his colleagues to dinner until his patience was about exhausted.
Finally a definite date was arranged but the gentleman informed him that
he would come "gin he wis spared."
"Weill, weill" was the rejoinder "gin
ye're deid we'll no expeck ye!"
