Ralph and Edna

Just  because someone doesn't love you the way you want them  to, doesn't  mean they don't love you with all they have.  Ralph  and Edna were  both patients in a mental hospital.  One day while  they were  walking past the hospital swimming pool,Ralph  suddenly jumped into the deep  end.

He sank to the bottom of the pool and  stayed there.


Edna promptly jumped in to  save him.  She swam to the bottom
and pulled  him out.  When the Head Nurse Director became  aware of Edna's  heroic act she immediately ordered her to be  discharged from the  hospital, as she now considered her to be mentally  stable.

When she went to tell Edna the news  she said, 'Edna, I have good news and  bad news.  The good news is you're being  discharged, since you  were able to rationally respond to a crisis by  jumping in and  saving the life of the person you love...  I have  concluded that your  act displays sound mindedness.

The bad news  is, Ralph hung himself in the bathroom with his bathrobe  belt right after you saved him.  I am so sorry, but  he's dead..'

Edna replied, 'He didn't hang  himself, I put him there to dry.. 
How  soon can I go home?'
