My sister-in-law is a surgical technician in Virginia, MN, and yesterday she told me a very humorous true story from the delivery room.
A couple were in for the birth of their first child. The doctor and the nurses quickly began preparing for a C-section birth, and the husband started to become flustered.
HUSBAND: Why are we having a C-section?
*nurses continue to prepare*
HUSBAND: I don’t understand this! Why do we have to do this by C-section?
NURSE: Because your wife has herpes, sir.
HUSBAND: When did my wife get herpes?!
Wow. That’s hilarious.
I love all wierdness between the lines. The wife just stayed silent the entire time, too. Nice move there. Just keep your mouth shut, and those herpes should clear right up, along with all the questions about when and how they were obtained.
I guess that’s how they roll on the Iron Range.
