Jim’s Rant For The Day. Are my Testicles Black?

As a condition being discharged from the hospital, I agree to come home wearing an oxygen mask for one week just in case I needed it. On March 10th the oxygen will be ordered off and I become just another human being again with the oxygen being sent back to it’s supplier.

The last few days wearing a plastic halo over my head has been a pain in the butt. I am reminded of the story of the the hospital patient who had a nurse visit him to sponge bathe him. She clearly heard him ask “are my testicles black?” She was rattled and explained she was just to bathe him but he was insistant so she cupped his little balls and held them up so he could see them.

He pulled off his oxygen mask and said “Thank you Honey, that was wonderful, but are my test results back?”
