Little People Are Funny

One of my best friends is a little person. She's about 3 feet tall. She'll tell you 3 feet 2 inches, but I think that's with shoes. We are close. I can tell her short people jokes and she can make jokes me in a wheelchair. No hard feelings, but we know when to quit.

Anyhow, she was visiting this weekend and complained about neck pain. I suggested she try a massage therapist. Massage has done wonders for me. She was asking lots of questions, what to wear, etc. Finally, she asked about price.

She said,  "It seems rather steep... I wonder if I could get 'half-price'".

I was shocked, because I wouldn't even have gone there!

The Good Doctor
Every couple months I have to send my physician a form and ask him to fill it out. He has to state that I have spinal muscular atrophy, identify the diagnosis date, explained that my prognosis is something akin to "ain't getting better any time soon" and sign it.
With new Medicare regulations, the good doctor is not allowed to sign the said form without seeing me "face-to-face" to prevent fraud. Although I'm extraordinarily healthy, hospitalized last in 1996 for something unrelated to my dis…

Friday Funnies: Aging Gracefully

I pointed to two old drunks sitting across the bar from us and told my friend, "That's us in 10 years".

He said "That's a mirror, dip-shit!"
