The hospital called to get intake information for tomorrow. Among the many questions were some from Medicare to see which benefits I might be entitled to (or what things some other program was paying for so Medicare wouldn’t need to).
“Are you checking into the hospital because of an accident?”
I couldn’t resist. “Does anyone get cancer on purpose?”
There was a pause, then she gave a forced chuckle. I guess not all hospital staff have a dark sense of humor.
