Hospital adventures - 3

Sitting outside the X-ray room, I saw a sign that read:
If red light is on,
you are pregnant
I looked up at the bulb above the door. It was on! This was astonishing news! Apart from the implications for my own future, this had to be a medical breakthrough of some sort. No more urine tests. No more ultrasonography. Just go to the hospital, sit facing the room and check the light.

Later, I realised that part of the sign outside the door had been missing; a mischievous intern must have torn it off. The full version was:
– If red light is on,
– If you are pregnant
Oh well. I’ll live with the disappointment somehow.


  1. Hahaha, this had me in splits! Do have a peg or two to get over the disappointment and drown your sorrows!

  2. Awww... sho shaaad! :D :D

  3. disappointed by the IF :/

  4. There is a water cooler in our office with 2 faucets. The blue one has no sign above it. The red one says "FRY HOT." My questions were (1) can we fry anything in hot water? (2) If yes, why didn't anyone tell me this before? I realized - with much disappointment- that the phrase was "VERY HOT". "V" and a part of "E" were erased out! :(
