The New Patient

A new patient arrived at the local surgery and when Doctor Miles remarked on his extraordinarily ruddy complexion, the new patient said, “It’s high blood pressure, Doc. It runs in my family.”

“On your mother’s side or your father’s?” the good doctor asked.

“Neither,” the patient replied. “It’s from my wife’s family.”

“Oh, come now,” said Doctor Miles, “how could your wife’s family pass on high blood pressure?”

The man sighed. “You oughta meet’em sometime, Doc!”
