Ah I know some with Parkinson's....

Why it’s a good thing that a doctor doesn’t talk like a plumber. 

Right, love, let’s get this brain into the MRI….NOOO! Can’t believe you still know your own name. My goodness, whoever did your veins did not have the first idea what he was doing… Quack! Wow, I’ve seen a lot in my time…but honestly. You came by in the nick of time. Better get this sorted. It might take a few months to get you back on track, but hey, you want to function somewhat reasonably, right, love?

Comfort us.

  She had fallen on her knees while running. There was even blood! She didn’t want to cry, but the tears ran down her cheeks nonetheless. The little girl’s mother ran to her and explained that there are 10 different types of plaster, 12 types of pill and 8 types of ointment. Oh, and if it’s really bad, they can stitch you back together with a needle and thread. So, what do you have to say about that then? Don’t worry! Hundreds of little boys and girls scrape their knees.
