Scheme of digestive tract, with vermiform appendix marked. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

As a doctor I routinely get woken up during the night. One night a guy calls me at 3:30 in the morning and starts screaming that his wife’s appendix is inflamed.

I said calmly, “I took out your wife’s appendix last year. Have you ever heard of having a second appendix?”

He yells at me,”Have you ever heard of having a second wife?”


A couple were driving their teenage daughter to the hospital, where she was scheduled to undergo a tonsillectomy.  They discussed how the procedure would be performed.

“Dad,” the teenager asked, “how are they going to get me to keep my mouth open the whole time?”

Her father replied, “They’re going to give you a phone.”

    Both were funny. The first could be a true story. I laughed out loud on the last one. That is one sure fire way of getting a teen girl to keep her mouth open.

    I don’t like the system of sending emails to a “reader”…I never know how to find it. Realized all of a sudden…the ice melted outside from the ice storm and my mind must have cleared because I realized I was no longer getting emails from you. Will have to figure out the reader thingy.

    Hope you have had a wonderful Holiday season and start to the New Year.

    Peace and love,
    Your computer illiterate friend in Maine ☺
    I resubscribed to your blog…maybe THAT will do it !

      Hi Siggi. I’m not posting at the moment – that’s why you’re not receiving any 🙂 I’ll be back in February.

      Thanks for caring x


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
