Getting Older Test

As we all get older, I'm sure that you would like to stay
"alive 'n sharp" for as long as possible. The harsh reality is however,
that none of us live forever, and one of these days each one of us is
likely to finally lose our smarts. If you're like most, you'll want to
know when that happens, so that you don't embarrass either yourself or your
loved ones. So I'm convinced that each of us should take a good hard look
at ourselves from time to time.

During a visit to a hospital for the mentally infirm, a visitor asked
the Director what the criterion was that defined whether or not a
patient should be institutionalized.

"Well," said the Director, "we fill up a bathtub and then we offer a
teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to
empty the bathtub."

"Oh, I understand," said the visitor. "A normal person would use the
bucket because it's bigger than the spoon or the teacup."

"No," said the Director, "a normal person would pull the plug.
Do you want a bed by the wall or near the window?"

This wouldn't happen to have anything to do with your recent hospital experience, would it??
