Ralph and Edna... Not Your Typical Love Story

The love story of 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?'

Happy Mental Health Day!
