Husband's Message (by cellphone):
Honey, I was involved in a car accident. Paula brought me to the Hospital.
They have been making tests and taking X-rays.
The blow to my head has been very severe, fortunately it seems that it did not cause any serious injury.
But I have three broken ribs, a compound fracture in the left leg, and they may have to amputate the right foot.
Who is Paula?
Tommy had reached school age. His mother managed with a blast of propaganda to make him enthusiastic about the idea. She bought him lots of new clothes, told him of the new friends he'd meet and so on.
Came the first day, he eagerly went off and came back home with a lot of glowing reports about school.
Next morning when she woke him up, he asked "What for?" She told him it was time to get ready for school.
"What? Again?" he asked.
One night a teenage girl brought her new boyfriend home to meet her parents and they were appalled by his appearance: leather jacket, motorcycle boots, tattoos and pierced nose.
Later, the parents pulled their daughter aside and confessed their concern. "Dear," said the mother diplomatically, "he doesn't seem very nice."
"Oh please, Mom," replied the daughter, "if he wasn't nice, why would he be doing 500 hours of community service?
