Funniest Joke Ever

I was 19 and coping with pain and nausea since our wedding for two weeks before Hubby took me to the emergency room and I was admitted for Honeymoon Appendicitis.  It is just like regular Appendicitis, but it coincides with your honeymoon, possibly because of stress.

Once I was allowed to get out of bed and walk around, I sat in the lounge area that overlooked a parking lot where I could see my bother and sister who were underage for visiting in the hospital.  After waving at me, I sat down with my parents, and watched my brother and sister playing around the fire hydrant.

“What are they doing,”  I asked.

“They are trying to unscrew the fire hydrant,”  said Dad.

I thought that was funny, and laughed, which wasn’t a good idea.  I could just imagine the water shooting up into the air like in a cartoon.  To calm me down, Dad said,  “That’s not funny.”  By the way I was laughing, I obviously disagreed.  Imagining the water shooting high into the air after my brother and sister unscrewed a fire hydrant was very funny, and Dad calmly telling me it wasn’t seemed like the funniest joke yet.  The more Dad tried to calm me down, the more amused I was.  I laughed so hard I cried, while holding a pillow against my stomach to keep from popping my stitches.

Finally Hubby took me back to my room, and let me calm down.  Thanks to that appendectomy I got an entire month off before I was allowed to go back to work.  That was the good old days.  I doubt you would get so much time off today.

  1. …and there was your siblings, high on top of the shooting water, like in the cartoons. Had to share my vision of your vision. 🙂

    I do not think we are allowed to contract any medical ailments these days in the work force. Not if you intend on keeping your job.
