An Elderly Man’s Awakening in the Hospital Bed, and the Unexpected Conversation with a Nun

Waking up in certain places is far from enjoyable—jail, the cemetery, the morgue, a serial killer’s basement, and, of course, a hospital. There’s an odd association between places meant for healing and unsettling experiences. Maybe it’s the anticipation of receiving bad news at any moment? Whatever the reason, hospitals often signal that something unfortunate has occurred. In this humorous tale, an elderly man, recovering from a heart attack, experienced a near-heart attack of a different kind when he glimpsed his hospital bill!

After suffering a heart attack and having quadruple bypass surgery,

An old man woke up to find himself in a Catholic hospital with nuns taking care of him.

As they nursed him back to health,

One of the nuns asked him if he had health insurance.

“No,” he replied,

“No health insurance.”

“Do you have any money in the bank?” asked the nun.

“No. No money in the bank.”

The nun asked,

“Do you have any relatives you could ask for help?”

The old man replied,

“I only have a spinster sister, who is a nun.”

At this, the nun because irritated.

“Nuns are not spinsters. Nuns are married to God!”

“OK, then,” said the old man.

“Send the bill to my brother-in-law.”
