 A woman's husband had been slipping in and out of a coma
 for several months, yet she had stayed by his bedside every
 single day. One day, when he finally awoke, he motioned for
 her to come closer.

 As she sat by him, he whispered, eyes full of tears, "You
 know what? You have been with me all through the bad times.
 When I got fired, you were there to support me. When my
 business failed, you were there. When I got shot, you were
 by my side. When we lost the house, you stayed right here.
 When my health started failing, you were still by my side.
 You know what?"

 "What dear?" She gently asked, smiling as her heart began to
 fill with warmth.

 "I think you're bad luck."

 A carpet layer had just finished installing carpet for a lady.
 He stepped out for a smoke, only to realize that he had lost his

 In the middle of the room, under the carpet, was a bump.  "No
 sense pulling up the entire floor for one pack of smokes," he
 said to himself.  He got out his hammer and flattened the hump.

 As he was cleaning up, the lady came in.

 "Here," she said, handing him his pack of cigarettes.  "I found
 them in the hallway."

 "Now," she said, "if only I could find my hamster."

A small bottle containing urine sat upon the desk of Sir William Osler, the 
eminent professor of medicine at Oxford University. Sitting before him was a 
class full of young, wide-eyed medical students, listening to his lecture on 
the importance of observing details. 

To emphasize his point, Sir Osler announced: "This bottle contains a sample 
for analysis. It's often possible by tasting it to determine the disease from 
which the patient suffers." 

He then dipped a finger into the fluid and brought it into his mouth. He 
continued speaking: "Now I am going to pass the bottle around. Each of you 
please do exactly as I did. Perhaps we can learn the importance of this 
technique and diagnose the case." 

The bottle made it's way from row to row, each student gingerly poking his 
finger in and bravely sampling the contents with a frown. 

Dr Osler then retrieved the bottle and startled his students by saying: 
"Gentlemen, now you will understand what I mean when I speak about details. 
Had you been observant, you would have seen that I put my INDEX FINGER in the 
bottle but my MIDDLE FINGER into my mouth!"
