Mr. Norton was in the hospital recovering from an operation when the nurse on duty received a call from a man who asked how Mr. Norton was doing.
The nurse responded, “Oh, quite well. We expect he’ll be released in the morning.”
The man then said, “Very good. Thank you.”
“May I ask who is calling so that I can tell Mr. Norton?” inquired the nurse.
“This IS Mr. Norton. The doctors don’t tell me anything.”
