Doctor-Patient Ice-Breaking

Doctor:
As we strap you in the stirrup, tell me what you do for work.

Patient:
I work in advertising, selling distant dreams to jerks.
The things I make are substanceless; they’re all imaginary.

Doctor:

Patient:

Doctor:
The view is great—but sometimes I can’t breathe because of queef.

Half-glassed Views of Life

Half Empty

“Life is a turnstile.
You stand in a file,
And waiting, you wile
While watching the dial
To join the big pile.”

Half Full

“You live in denial
And lie with a smile.
Be bold; dare to rile,
Cross tile extra mile.
Now that’s a lifestyle.”
