Sorry for the brief hiatus .....
Our son, daughter-in-law and grandchildren are here, as they are having lots of building work done at their house ..... and we have been having fun with these little rascals !!!
Late in the night, he finally regained consciousness.
He was in the hospital, in terrible pain.
He found himself in the ICU with tubes in his mouth, needles and IV drips in both arms,
a breathing mask, wires monitoring every function, and a nurse hovering over him.
He realised that he was obviously in a life- threatening situation.
The nurse gave him a serious, deep look, straight into his eyes, then spoke to him slowly
and clearly, enunciating each word and syllable, "You may not feel anything from the waist down."
Somehow he managed to mumble in reply,
"Can I feel your boobs, then?"
AND THAT, MY FRIEND, IS AN OPTIMIST!!
