Any problems getting up in the morning?

Eighty-something and mega-spry, Roland brought his lady friend along to his appointment. BP was great, no problems found.

“I’ve been meaning to ask about Roland’s thyroid,” Ms. LF ventured at visit’s end. “He’s so full of energy; is that normal?”

I so knew what she meant by “energy”, and could not suppress a hearty laugh.

What sermon where?

After church, she went down for a nap and woke up with no memory of the service. She recalled all events within minutes, but her children dragged her in for a visit.

“Everyone’s foggy post-nap,” I declared. “Call if it happens again.”

She sighed with relief and walked out with a smile...her purse still under the chair.
