Life is full of funny situations. Those are the things that sometime keep one from being depressed or going off the deep end (one of Dad’s statements). Once while hunting my buddy Sonny and I walked back to the camping area. Another couple guys had decided to camp nearby with a little fold out camper. That is a small camper that flips two flat sides out where you sleep. As below.
Well you need to brace under each side if you don’t you will ‘capsize’ the little camper. Anyway as we walked into the camping area the larger of the two guys had done just that and he could not get out. The little camper was tilted at a 45 degree angle and the guy could not get up. We helped him out and we all got a good laugh out of it.
“I think you for got to put the back legs out”
“And what was you first clue?”
Sherry likes to find out as much as she can about John’s condition so she tries to catch the Doctor on his rounds. I don’t join the huddle if I am there. One morning She caught the Dr, nurses and the Dr’s Assistant (DA) in the hall. I was watching and as Sherry was talking she pointed upward, the Dr. suddenly put his hand on Sherry’s arm as if to console her. Then they all laughed. From where I was it was a little confusing. In a few minutes she returned to where I stood, smiling. I asked, “what was that all about?”
She laughed, “I asked the doctor when John was going up and pointed up.”
“I saw that,” I said.
“He thought I was asking when Johnny was gonna pass, and he said they were trying their best to delay that for a long time. And the DA laughingly explained to the DR. that I meant when is he going UP to the 7th floor for rehab therapy.”
Also when Johnny is asked a question he will just sorta tilt his head, raise his eyebrows and shrug his shoulders. Now, I answer Sherry like that sometime, and we both laugh.
My latest no-no. Sherry always checks our bank statement. She keeps telling me is, that check we sent with our tax return this year, still hasn’t been cashed. Well yesterday we went to the motor home and I got on the computer to print some statements where I had ordered books. The silly printer kept wanting to print an alignment page, so it finally did. So I figured when it said put it in the scanner to align it, I may as well do it. I raised the lid and there was an envelope, I turned it over to look at it and it was our Income tax return that had never been mailed.
SO I HAD TO TELL SHERRY WHY THE GOVERNMENT HAD NOT CASHED OUR CHECK! OUCH!
Yeah, we got a laugh out of that too!
You can tell how big a person is by what it takes to discourage him.
