      Nothing like a good belly laugh. My mom always said that laughter was the best medicine! I was not cut out to be a doctor either just to marry two.

      It was funny. I'm not going to tell my score, or y'all would laugh some more. I'm not cut out to be a doctor, just a cut up.

      Very funny Sherry. You are carrying on the Drbj tradition. I only got 20 points, so I guess I have to look for a job in the morgue :)

      I thought the punctuation mark most used by doctors was a colon, or semi colon.

      I couldn't be a doctor, anyway - I don't have the patients for it.
