Wise Words

You're Beautiful!

There was a lawyer who was waking up from anesthesia after surgery, and his wife was sitting by his side.
His eyes fluttered open and said, "You're beautiful!" after which he fell asleep again.
His wife had never heard him say that so she stayed by his side. A couple of minutes later his eyes fluttered open and said "You're cute!"
The wife was disappointed because instead of "beautiful" he said "cute."
She asked, "What happened to 'beautiful'?"
He replied, "The drugs are wearing off!"

Comforting Words
A man was seen fleeing down the halls of hospital just before his operation.
"What's the matter?" he was asked.
He said, "I heard the nurse say, 'It's a very simple operation, don't worry, I'm sure it will be all right."
"She was just trying to comfort you, what's so frightening about that?"
"She wasn't talking to me. She was talking to the doctor."

Poisoned Coffee
A woman once got annoyed at a man. She said sharply to him, "If you were my husband, I'd put poison in your coffee."
"And if I were your husband," responded the man, "I'd drink it."
