One Big Pill – Humor Unplugged
Wisdom - the final frontier to true knowledge. Welcome to Wisdom-Trek! Where our mission is to create a legacy of wisdom, to seek out discernment and insights, to boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before. Hello, my friend, I am Guthrie Chamberlain, your Captain on our journey to increase Wisdom and Create a Living Legacy. Thank you for joining us today as we explore wisdom on our 2nd millennium of podcasts. This is Day 1472 of our Trek, and time for a 3-minute mini-trek called Humor Unplugged. Our Thursday podcast will provide a short and clean funny story to help you lighten up and live a rich and satisfying life. Something to cheer you and give a bit a levity in your life. We are told in Proverbs 15:30A cheerful look brings joy to the heart; good news makes for good health.We are also encouraged in Proverbs 17:22A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength. Consider this your vitamin supplement of cheer for today. So let’s jump right in with today’s funny which is titled:
One Big Pill
Charles was working hard outside building a new sidewalk with large cement paver bricks. He was making good headway but was growing very weary as he goes back to his pickup truck to carry the final 100-pound paver to put in in place. As Charles picks up the paver from the bed of the truck is slips from his hands and falls on his right foot. He was sure that it was probably broken, and as he took his shoe off, he noticed that his foot was swelling up quickly. Sally, his wife, was not home at the time, so Charles hobbles to the driver seat of his pickup truck and heads to the Emergency Room. After waiting for 30 minutes, the pain was almost more than Charles could stand. Finally, he was called back to a room where Doctor Smith carefully examines Charles’s foot and then took an Xray. Dr. Smith checks the Xray, and there were no broken bones. Dr. Smith came back and said, well Charles, the good news is that the foot is not broken, but there is damage to some muscles and ligaments. Dr. Smith hands Charles a pill big enough to choke a horse. He turned to Charles and said, “I’ll send the nurse in with some water.”
Charles waited another 30 minutes with his foot hurting more all the time. He finally loses patience. Charles hobbles out to a nearby drinking fountain, forces the pill down his throat, and slurps down an abundance of water until the pill clears his throat. He hobbles back into the examining room.
Just then, the nurse comes in with a large bucket of warm water, she looks at Charles and says, “Okay, after the tablet dissolves, soak that foot for about 20 minutes.”I hope that brought a smile to your face today. If it did pass your smile onto some else, we all could use a kind smile each day. Our Thursday thought is, “I tripped over a box of Kleenex this morning and thought I had broken my ankle. Thankfully, it was just soft tissue damage.”
And how will anyone go and tell them without being sent? That is why the Scriptures say, “How beautiful are the feet of messengers who bring good news!”
