As most know. April Fools day is not just any day. It’s my birthday. If you were wondering why I’m so twisted, this may explain it. And by virtue of it, I look for really truly outstanding jokes to spring on people.
Member Tombo, the one who sandbagged me with the Mars v. Venus fiasco, sends us this to placate our need for more humor. I really can’t wait to be readmitted to the hospital as an inpatient. This is priceless.
An old Vet in the hospital…
There was one nurse that just drove me crazy. Every time she came in, she would talk to me like I was a little child. She would mew like a kitten in a patronizing tone of voice,
‘And how are we doing this morning?’ Or ‘Are we ready for a bath?’, or ‘Are we hungry ?’ It was more than any man should have to bear.
Tuesday, at breakfast, I took the apple juice off the tray and put it in my bed side stand. Urine testing was done on Tuesdays. Later, I was given the urine bottle to fill for testing.
The nurse came in a little later, picked up the urine bottle and held it up to the light.
‘My, it seems we are a little cloudy today. ‘
I motioned for her to hand it to me. When she got closer with it, I snatched the bottle out of her hand, popped off the top, and drank it down, saying,
‘Well, I’ll run it through again. Maybe I can clear it up a bit with another trip.’
Yep. My kind of Vet. My kind of joke.
