Demetrius would at times tarry from business to attend to pleasure. On such occasions he usually feigned indisposition. His father, coming to visit him, saw a beautiful young lady retire from his chamber. On his entering, Demetrius said,

“Sir, the fever has left me”.

“I met it at the door”, replied the father.

((Demetrius of Alopece[1] (Greek: Δημήτριος), was a Greek sculptor of the early part of the 4th century BC, who is said by ancient critics to have been notable for the lifelike realism of his statues. His portrait of Pellichus, a Corinthian general, “with fat paunch and bald head, wearing a cloak which leaves him half exposed, with some of the hairs of his head flowing in the wind, and prominent veins”, was admired by Lucian. He was contrasted with Cresilas, an idealizing sculptor of the generation before. Since however the peculiarities mentioned by Lucian do not appear in Greek portraits before the 3rd century BC and since the Greek art of the 4th century consistently idealizes, there would seem to be a difficulty to explain.))[2]


Autopsy will answer!

The old-timer had been sick in bed for weeks. The local doctors had been unable to help or to diagnose. The old codger insisted that he didn’t need anybody’s help, but specialists were called in over his protests. When they had gone, his friends and relatives asked the old man what they had said.

“Told you I was alright”, he said triumphantly. “Them gentlemen used a lot of big words I couldn’t understand but they finally said,

Well, no use worrying about it or arguing over it. The autopsy will soon give us the answer”.


Abraham Lincoln’s Sickness

Abraham Lincoln was once confined to the White House with a bad cold, a congressman, who had called to express his sympathy , was interrupted in the middle of his solemn words by the President, who said laughingly,

Well – I expect colds. And looking down at his large feet he continued,

“There is so much of me on the ground, you know”.
