A newly qualified doctor took over from a retiring GP and decided to go out and visit some of his older, less able patients to introduce himself and check on their health.
Arriving at Aunt Ellie’s house he said: “Hello, Mrs. Ellie. You sure look fit for your age!”
“Why thank you, doctor,” she replied, “I’ve never been sick a day in all my 84 years.”
“That’s great,” he replied, “Say, have you ever been bedridden?”
Aunt Ellie stared at him for a moment before saying: “Well, yes, many times…. and once in a buggy!”
