Long Hot Bath

Feeling edgy, a man took a hot bath. Just as he’d become comfortable, the
front doorbell rang. The man got out of the tub, put on terry
cloth slippers and a large towel, wrapped his head in a smaller towel, and
went to the door. A salesman at the door wanted to know if he needed
any brushes. Slamming the door, the man returned to the bath.

The
doorbell rang again. On went the slippers and towels, and the man started for
the door again.

He took one step, slipped on a wet spot, fell, and hit his
back against the hard porcelain of the tub.

Cursing under his breath,
the man struggled into his street clothes and, with every move a stab
of pain, drove to the doctor.

After examining him, the doctor said,
“You know, you’ve been lucky. Nothing is broken. But you need to relax.
Why don’t you go home and take a long hot bath?”
