Mike W, as a result of some undisclosed adventures, finds himself hospitalised. I am in an adjacent room with Alan Mc & several others. I take a call from a nurse, but all she tells me is that she is training & she hopes that I wouldn’t mind taking a brief survey. “Do you have any news about Mike,” I ask. “Oh, I don’t know anything about that,” she says. “But would you be interested in receiving our weekly newsletter?” “Not really. But can I ask, does he have his socks?” “Yes,” she says. “He has his socks.” I put the phone down & relay the scant news to the others. “Phew!” says Alan Mc. “One for each foot!” This seems to be a completely brilliant joke & we all roll around laughing!
