My wife is a home health care nurse. She visits patients in their home.

One day, she visited a man in a poor area who she had not attended to before. She was there to change a catheter.

‘You have good hands,’ he said afterward. ‘How long have you been a nurse?’

‘Thirty years,’ she said.

‘I guess you went to nursing school right outta college.’
