Ted's Own Dilemma

by DragonSkulls

At work today, I asked Ted, "How are you doing?"

"I had to have my wife rush me to the hospital last
night. While working with the nailer on my patio, I
dropped it and it fired a three inch nail into my skull.
The X-ray showed it actually went into my brain.
They removed it but might have to do surgery
if it gets infected. That is crazy, right?"

"To be honest, I was really just looking for, 'Fine.' "
