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?"
