Surprises
"While she was enjoying a transatlantic ocean trip, Billie Burke, the famous actress, noticed that a gentleman at the next table was suffering from a bad cold.
"Are you uncomfortable?" she asked sympathetically. The man nodded.
"I'll tell you what to do for it, " she offered. "Go back to your stateroom and drink lots of orange juice. Take two aspirins. Cover yourself with all the blankets you can find. Sweat the cold out. I know just what I am talking about. I'm Billie Burke from Hollywood."
The man smiled warmly and introduced himself in return. "Thanks," he said, "I'm Dr. Mayo of the Mayo Clinic."

Sometimes life does have it's surprises, and sometimes we find out we just don't know as much as we think we do. This short happening made me smile. Hope it does the same for you on this beautiful Fall day.
