Behind The Dark Door

'of cardio-vascular surgery'

Uncertainty coupled by trepidation.
'Aye, don't worry lad, its all done by
fookin' marrgic now! '
'No more open chest surgery.'

It's just like putting a patch on a
bicycle tube - only easier.
A stent placed in position via
the groin, or keyholed in. Voila!

'You speak from experience? '
'Nah, I saw it done on Google.'
'On Google you say? '
'Shyte, that's reassuring.'

Jerry always tells the truth behind the dark and mysterious doors!

This is so hilarious, although a sensitive subject. You have still got your sense of humour Jerry, which is the most important thing. Loved this one enormously. Love and hugs Ernestine XXX
