During the doctor‘s periodic visit to my elderly mother, I told him that Mother would be celebrating her 98th birthday in few days. Delighted by the news, he bent down and gave her a kiss for the occasion. He then announced that he, too, would be celebrating a birthday in few days and asked for a kiss in return.
When he left, my mother shook her head in disgust. “Can you imagine, ” she said. “Seventy dollars and I had to kiss him too!”
