Last evening I was talking on the phone with my brother-in-law who was telling me about his recent hospitalization. Glenn is 92 years of age, retired military. Served 22 years in the 101st Airborne and 82nd Airborne, WWII, German Occupation, Korea. That's background. The conversation:
Glenn: I'm lying in bed, flat on my back, lady comes in.
Lady: How are you?
Glenn: Why don't you tell me. I'm in the hospital, for heaven's sake.
Lady: Would you like for the chaplain to stop by for a visit?
Glenn: Oh, hell no. I'm not in the hospital to visit with people I don't know. I came here to get well.
vanilla: (laughing my butt off)
Glenn: It wasn't really that funny.
