Overheard at BC Children’s Hospital
A: If you could be any colour what colour would you be?
B: Um, red? You?
A: Blue. Obviously.
B: Why is that obvious?
A: Because of my eyes and the colour of my sweater and jeans?
B: Oh. Right.
A: If you could be any animal, what animal would you be?
B: Hm… That’s a hard one –
A: Why, because you hate animals?
B: No. Because I’m a veterinary assistant. And I love animals.
A: Oh, right. I forgot that… So?
B: I guess a dolphin? Or a grizzly bear?
A: Those are very different animals. You have to choose one.
B: A grizzly.
A: Really? I was going to say a warthog.
B: That’s just mean.
