ONE OF THOSE DAYS

When I awoke this morning, while getting out of bed,
I tripped on a shoe, and fell on my head.
A knot popped up, as big as an egg.
My toe turned blue, and I skinned my leg.
I limped to the bathroom, dripping blood on the floor,
and mashed my finger, while closing the door.
I hollered in pain, which scared my wife.
She came running, to save my life.
She swung open the door, which now was closed,
smashing my face, and breaking my nose..
Both eyes turned black.  I bled for an hour.
So, as a last resort, I got in the shower.
While feeling and groping, I turned on the water.
At first it was cold, then got hotter and hotter.
The steam was so dense, I was unable to see.
So, I got some burns, to the third degree.
It was time to get help.  "I must go to ER!"
My wife couldn't drive!  We couldn't go by car!
My wife called "911", explaining my luck.
She said I got burned.  They sent a "Fire truck".
I was in such pain, I didn't much care.
I would have ridden a camel, if it would get me there.
When we arrived there, the nurse said, with a smile,
"Please have a seat.  It will be a while."
It was finally my turn.  The nurse said with a grin,
"What happened to you?  What war have you been in?"
My face was so swollen, I was unable to talk.
I barely could move.  I could hardly walk.
Finally the doctor arrived, and took one look.
Then said to the nurse,  "This is one for the book."
"Get me some swabs, some sutures and gauze."
"If I can save him, I'll deserve your applause."
Three hours on the table, tubes running everywhere.
I was yelling and screaming, "Let me out of here!"
Stitched and bandaged, I was on my way.
The nurse hollered out, "HAVE A NICE DAY."
