When we get a diagnosis from a doctor that we don’t want to hear, our first response is often to deny the fact that they even said it in the first place. We begin to wonder how we could ever be in that position, and it may take some time before it actually sinks in. This is especially true when the diagnosis is pregnancy, and now you are not only facing the possibility of having a child, you are facing a parent who may not be very happy about your situation. It’s a serious issue, but it is something that gives us a good laugh when we see the humor of this physician.
A woman takes her 16-year-old daughter to the doctor. The doctor says, “Okay, Mrs. Jones, what’s the problem?” The mother says, “It’s my daughter Darla, she keeps getting these cravings, she’s putting on weight and is sick most mornings.”
The doctor gives Darla a good examination then turns to the mother and says, “Well, I don’t know how to tell you this but Darla is pregnant, about four months would be my guess.”
The mother says, “Pregnant?! She can’t be, she has never ever been left alone with a man! Have you Darla?” Darla says, “No mother! I’ve never even kissed a man!”
The doctor walked over to the window and just stares out it. About five minutes pass and finally the mother says, “Is there something wrong out there doctor?
The doctor replies, “No, not really, it’s just that the last time anything like this happened, a star appeared in the east and three wise men came over the hill. I’ll be darned if I’m going to miss it this time!”
