Joke time...

"Why haven't you called me?" I said, "I can't call everyone I want. My new phone has no five on it." He said, "How long have you had it?" I said, "I don't know...my calendar has no sevens on it." -- Steven Wright

I got a call from my surgeon's office today. "We've hit a snag. We can't do the surgery on Monday because that's a holiday." (That's probably why I asked last week, "do you do surgeries on holidays?" when you replied "yes.") She continued, "so we can either do it tomorrow or Wednesday the 27th." (Well, given that I already postponed tomorrow's scheduled surgery because my oncologist said it was too soon after my cancer treatment, so I'm going to say no to tomorrow again.)

Okay, so it's now on Wednesday the 27th. "By the way, were my blood counts okay for surgery?" "Oh, I haven't given the results to the doctor yet." "Oh, so all this could change again." (How about if once you see my obituary, you make the appointment for the next day?)

Reminded me of this old joke:
In Soviet Russia there was a farmer who managed to save enough money to purchase a car of his own. He made the journey to the local distributor of automobiles and waited his turn in queue.

When he reached the counter the official told him, "Ok, you can come back to pick up your new car," the official ran his finger down a list, "you can pick up your car two years from tomorrow."

The farmer asked, "Morning or afternoon?" The official replied, "What do you care, it's two years from now?"

The farmer replied, "Well the plumber is coming in the afternoon."
