Lighten up Mondays

Posted on Updated on

landscape-536173_1280I’m in a medical humor kind of mood so here’s something to tickle your funny bone if it needs tickling:

Mr. Smith was brought to the hospital and taken quickly in for heart surgery. The operation went well and as the old man regained consciousness he was reassured by a hospital staff person – who was also a Catholic nun – that everything went well.

“Mr. Smith, you’re going to be just fine,” said the nun, gently patting his hand. “We do need to know, however, how you intend to pay for your stay here. Are you covered by insurance?”

“No, I’m not,” the man whispered hoarsely.

“Then can you pay in cash?” persisted the nun.

“I’m afraid I cannot, Sister.”

“Well, do you have any close relative?” the nun questioned sternly.

“Just  my sister in New Mexico, but she’s a humble spinster nun, just like yourself.”

“Oh, I must correct you, Mr. Smith, nuns are not spinsters, they are married to God.”

“Wonderful,” said Mr. Smith, “In that case, please send the bill to my brother-in-law.”

    Oh no, I’m sorry to hear about your ankle, Irene. I hope it’s feeling better soon. I once missed that last step while carrying the laundry basket…not a pretty site when I bit the hardwood floor.
