“Here’s another interesting story, Daphne.” Dad was reading the local paper. Mum did not look up from her magazine.
“Last Friday, 9 year old Peter Burgess was admitted to hospital with an acute attack of asthma. There were no emergency ambulances available and he had to be flown in by helicopter. When they arrived at the hospital, Peter climbed down from the cockpit with a big smile on his face. He told the nurse that he was already feeling better.” My Dad smiled.
“Peter was discharged home three days later. When he went back to school, he told all his friends that this had been his best asthma attack, ever.”
