My father had eye surgery this morning, performed by my cousin's wife. I had a message on my phone when I arrived at work, from the doctor. She said "I just wanted to let you know that your dad is doing fine after the surgery. We are still a little groggy from the anaesthesia..."

WE are groggy??!!! You're the doctor; you're not supposed to be touching the stuff! You shouldn't be groggy!

Of course, I'm the type that when the doctor walks in the room and asks "how are we doing today" I answer "My half of we is sick, what about your half?"

This has nothing to do with words. Rather, it has to do with a certain doctor, who, upon walking into the patient's hospital room, asked the attending nurse: "How is the patient doing?"

"He's in a lot of pain."

The doctor pulled the nurse aside, and instructed her that the proper thing to say is, "The patient thinks he's in pain."

The next morning he met up with the nurse in another room. Just to see if she'd learned the lesson the day before, the doctor asked: "How is the patient doing?"

To which the nurse replied, "The patient thinks he's dead."

Thanks. It's up there a ways; I really used a lot in the current "homo agenda" thread on NADA; I would guess it's in the range of 25-30.

No problem.

I poked around on "Improve the Fool," where the number of recs is a big issue, and it seems to be set at 30 right now.
