Why do folk think there's something funny about adults with incontinency issues???

Take my word for it --- nothing funny!

I endeavor to find humor in everything, because I am, by nature, a chronically neurotic malcontent.

It would be much more difficult being around me, if I lost my humorous perspective.

My medical nurse wife Belinda rarely uses profanity. The other day she said to me,

"Bless you...

...and the horse you rode in on!"

"And one day for no particular reason we became offended by everything"

Most nurses (and other people as well) use humor to deal with issues that they either have been involved in, are currently involved in, or fear happening. It was a joke, no harm meant to anyone! Cant we laugh anymore, seriously?!

Appreciate you. My super depressed patient (during the height of COVID) said something like how we, as nurses, probably don't have much to laugh about these days. 

Response: "Honestly, as a nurse -

 we tend to find a way to make anything funny." 

He laughed so hard! Like started tearing up. Full belly laugh.

And then there was the time I walked into a patient's room, delivering her supper-tray, saying, as I walked in: "Soup to nuts!" Fortunately the patient laughed. I later found out she was a psych patient. Oops!
