Doctors and Medicine : Aspirin Remedy
Jane called the doctor in a panic. "Doctor, doctor! My little Jimmy
swallowed a dozen aspirin. What should I do?"
The doctor asked Jane, "Are you sure it was a dozen?"
The frantic mother replied, "Absolutely! Doctor, I'm scared to death!"
The doctor told the mother, "Calm down. Is little Jimmy crying?"
Jane said, "No."
"Is he sleeping?" asked the doctor.
"No." said the mother.
The doctor went on with routine questions, "Is his color funny?"
Again Jane replied, "No."
"Did Jimmy throw up?" asked the methodical doctor.
"No." said the worried mom. "But I'm so scared. All that aspirin...
shouldn't I do something?"
To which the doctor quipped, "Try giving him a headache."
