for several months, yet she had stayed by his bedside every single day. One day, when he came to, he motioned for her to come nearer.

"I found a piece of paper in your pants pocket with the name 'Marylou' written on it," she said, furious. "You had better have an explanation."
"Calm down, honey," the man replied. "Remember last week when I was at the dog

"What was that for?" he complained.
"Your dog called last night."
