Hospital chat
Two women at the Port Moresby General Hospital yesterday were heard debating what ENT written outside a department stood for. One suggested “Ear, Neck and Throat”. The left it that. (It’s ear, nose, throat).
Hong Kong Sevens
Everyone who makes the annual pilgrimage to watch the IRB Hong Kong rugby sevens hope it will still go ahead despite the coronavirus threat. What a sight it will be to see everyone around the Government Stadium at So Kon Po wearing face masks.
Made in China
A restaurant in the Liverpool suburb of Sydney had been widely criticised for a “tasteless” joke about the killer coronavirus. A note on the glass says the coronavirus “won’t last long because it’s made in China”. Tasteless indeed.
Never been there
On a train in Italy, a woman comments loudly when a Chinese boy boards the train: “There you go, we are all going to be infected.” Boy replies coolly: “Ma’am, in my whole life, I have seen China only on google maps.”
Phone power
If this is a regular scene in your home, you know cellphone “epidemic” has taken over your family. Most times, all the heads are buried so deeply in their phones they do not know that anyone else exists. So sad that it has to come to this.
All in one
And the cellphone too has become your watch, camera, calendar and alarm clock. So don’t let it replace your family.
Who to marry
Mister Five: Dad I want to get married.
Dad: Ok. Have you met someone?
Mister Five: Yes, Grandma. She loves me and takes good care of me. I want to marry her.
Dad: Oh, okay. Only problem there is that she is my mother. You cannot marry my mother.
Mister Five: Why is that a problem? You married mine.
Thought for today
Respect the old when you are young, help the weak when you are strong, confess the fault when are wrong, because one day, you will be old, weak and wrong.
