Groundhog Day


I was in hospital as a day-patient today for a little "procedure." Fascinating word!
I was lying on the bed in the theater and the nurses were explaining what would happen.
"A needle will be placed in your hand and you will receive a strong sedative. You will begin to feel very drowsy and your whole body will relax. You will still be able to follow instructions but you won't be able to remember everything."
Hold on a minute. Where have I heard that before? Oh yeah, being hypnotised by Keith Barry last week.
I must have said it out loud because the two nurses were fascinated. They sat on the edge of the bed and I told them all about it. I had just finished the hand shaking/multiple orgasm part when in walks Mr. Mooney, my doctor. The nurses jumped up and stood behind him.
"Good afternoon Noeleen. This won't take a moment".........and he held out his hand to shake mine.
The two nurses' eyes went out on sticks and they were in a hoop trying not to laugh.
and just for the record.....he was no Keith Barry!
