Never one to miss a good opportunity to laugh whilst having cancer treatment, Christine Clifford believes in a certain Dr. Siegel, who said,
“show me a patient who is able to laugh and play… and I will show you someone who is going to live longer”.
And throughout her new book she comes up with one-liners, two-liners and lots-of-liners that make you laugh out loud, from
Shouldn’t they call it a HERSterectomy?
to one that pokes gentle fun at doctors who consider themselves superior beings, via a description of The Pope:
His Holiness is at the Pearly Gates, not best pleased at having to wait in line. He sees a man with a stethoscope walk to the head of the queue, and to his astonishment he is let in before everyone else.
He demands to know why the Guardian Angel allows doctors in before him.
The Angel answers, “that was no doctor. That was God. He just liked to pretend he is a doctor”.
And whenever you come across one of those pompous beings, I can promise you you will remember Christine’s story – and smile.
Or there was the woman who woke up and thought she was dead. Why? Because nothing hurts. (We can all smile at that). Or I let out a loud laugh when I read about the woman who insisted she wanted Whoopee cushions placed on the pews at her funeral.
Laughing all the way – that’s the best medicine.
