Today we took my mother to the doctor for some tests, which she passed with flying colors and an anecdote to reuse the next few weeks. “I’ve never seen anything like this,” the doctor said to her, exhibiting the pictures of inside her head. “You have an abnormally thick skull.”
“It’s fine,” my mom chuckled at us later. “But who would have known? I said, ‘I’ve always been thick-headed!'”
“Yes,” I remarked. Hardy har har.
