The Bathtub Test

During a visit to the mental asylum, I asked the director, "How do you determine whether or not a patient should be institutionalized?"

'Well,' said the Director, 'we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to empty the bathtub.'

'Oh, I understand,' I said. 'A normal person would use the bucket because it's bigger than the spoon or the teacup.'

'No.' said the Director, 'A normal person would pull the plug. Do you want a bed near the window?'

*falls over giggling* Do you want the bed next to mine? Yep.. I was sure it was the bucket too. Thanks to Mom for sending this one.

Love y'as! *smooches*

I want a room with padded walls and a view too. I just do not want one of those jackets that make me hug myself. =Þ~~

Divine Chaos said...

I love hugs! even when i am hugging myself! lol

Paula aka. Zani said...

Oh no.. I want hugs.. just not one of those jackets.. yanno the ones with the arms tied behind you. The rubber room I could handle.. the jacket would make me feel claustrophobic. Not good. *shivers*
