Me: “Hi Honey, it’s me.”


Hubby: “Hey Tray, what’s up?”


Me: “I just got back from the orthopedist about my knee and I wanted to let you know what he said.”


Hubby: “OK. What’s the verdict.”


Me: “He thinks I have a torn, um… a torn, um… shoot! I can’t remember what it’s called.”


Hubby: “What does it sound like?”


Me: “Umm. Oh, I know. It’s a torn Nabisco.”


Hubby: “You have a torn cookie company?”


Me: “No. That’s not right. Let me think. I have a torn… Spartacus?”


Hubby: “That would be an ancient Greek hero.”


Me: “OK. Hang on a second. It is a torn Hibiscus.”


Hubby: “I don’t think that’s it.”


Me: “No?”


Hubby: “A hibiscus is a flower.”


Me: “Well I know it sounds like hibiscus.”


Hubby: “How about Meniscus.”


Me: “Yes!!! It is a Meniscus! That’s it!!”


Hubby: “OK. you have a torn Meniscus. That’s not good.”


Me: “Well the doctor said it could be worse.”


Hubby: “How’s that?”


Me: “At least it’s not my Godzilla.”


Hubby: “Patella.”


Me: “Right.”
