Thursday Smile

The girl is home and well.

During a visit to the mental asylum, I asked the director how do you determine whether or not a patient should be institutionalized.

“Well,” said the director, “we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to empty the bathtub.”

“Oh, I understand,” I said. “A normal person would use the bucket because it’s bigger than the spoon or the teacup.”
“No.” said the director, “A normal person would pull the plug. Do you want a bed near the window?”

    Darn, there go my hopes of a padded, quiet cell.

    My first thought was pull the plug . . .

    Hope Delta is recovering fabulously and is sticking to doggie food.
