My sister sent this to me in an email and I thought
I would share it with everyone
The phone rings and the lady of the house answers,
"Mrs. Ward, please."
"Mrs. Ward, this is Doctor Jones at the Medical
Testing Laboratory. When
your doctor sent your husband's specimen to the lab
yesterday, a specimen from another Mr. Ward arrived as
well, and we are now uncertain which one is your
husband's. Frankly the results are either bad or
"What do you mean?" Mrs. Ward asks nervously.
"Well, one of the specimens tested positive for
Alzheimer's and the other one tested positive for
AIDS. We can't tell which is your husband's."
"That's dreadful! Can't you do the test again?"
questioned Mrs. Ward.
"Normally we can, but Medicare will only pay for these
expensive tests one
"Well, what am I supposed to do now?"
"The people at Medicare recommend that you drop your
husband off somewhere in the middle of town. If he
finds his way home,
don't sleep with him."
