My mom’s a nurse and has worked at the same nursing home in Austin, Texas for more than 20 years. She loves to forward me jokes, most of them about the elderly. Haha! Here is a recent one, for your enjoyment…
My Private Part Died
An old man, Mr.. Wallace, was living in a nursing home…
One day he appeared to be very sad and depressed.
Nurse Tracy asked him if there was anything wrong,
“Yes, Nurse. My Private Part died today, and I am very sad…”
Knowing her patients were a little forgetful and sometimes a little crazy, she replied, “Oh, I’m so sorry, Mr. Wallace. Please accept my condolences.”
The following day, Mr. Wallace was walking down the hall with his Private Part hanging out of his pajamas. He met up with Nurse Tracy…
“Mr. Wallace,” she said. ‘”You shouldn’t be walking down the hall like that. Please put your Private Part back inside your pajamas.”
“But, Nurse Tracy… I can’t,” replied Mr. Wallace. “I told you yesterday that my Private Part died.”
“Yes,” said Nurse Tracy, “you did tell me that, but why is it hanging out of your pajamas?”
“Well,” he replied, “Today is the viewing…”
Good one, eh?
On a sad note, one of my mom’s patients – Diana Latham – passed away earlier this month after a short battle with cancer. A memorial service was held yesterday in Austin. She was Patrick Swayze’s aunt and spoke very highly of him, according to my mom. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.
