A man was just coming out of anesthesia after a series of tests in the hospital, and his wife was sitting at his bedside. His eyes fluttered open, and he murmured: “You’re beautiful”.
Flattered, the wife continued her vigil while he drifted back to sleep. Later, her husband woke up and said: “You’re cute.”
What happened to ‘beautiful?’ she asked him.
The drugs are wearing off, he replied.
