Been a lot of talk lately on this site of teh benefits of a good laugh to help us cope with all this and I for one agree. So thought I'd start a topic dedicated to people describing some of the more amusing experiences they have had throughout this process and sharing a laugh with others. We could all do with a bit of light comedy.
I'll start....I'll never forget the time lying on the exam couch of surgeon while being assessed for surgery in the now familiar position of knees curled up lying on my left habd side to allow for 'digital exam' of my rectal tumour (we've all been there and not just the once either!). The surgeon (who I'm sure has fingers the size of large German sausages) kept up his coversation thorughout talking about New Zealand where I come from. I laughed out loud though when he started on the usual topic that every one now asssociates with NZ- the Lord of the Rings (filmed down under)- and had to point out that he was infact currently the lord of my ring and would he just shut and get on with it. He responded well to it and finished up quickly.
So please share your experiences that made you laugh and brighten my gloomy day.
