A man was just coming out of anesthesia after having laser spine surgery 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.” Startled, she asked him, “What happened to ‘beautiful?'” He replied, “The drugs are wearing off.”
