I know being in hospital is a torrid time for most, if not all, of us. But sometimes, just sometimes, we find little fun or amusing ways to help get us through.
One time, I was in Queen Mary's Hospital in Sidcup, Kent. They had a hospital radio there, and every night a young fella would come round the wards asking if any of the patients had any requests. Now bear in mind, I was a young lad in my 20's, surrounded by elderly folk in their 60's/70's/80's.
Being particularly fed up one day, tired of hearing songs from the 1940's and 50's, and being the mischievous young tyke that I was in my 20's, when the lad came round that evening asking for requests, I asked him for one song. Just one:
Don't Fear the Reaper, by Blue Oyster Cult.
Off he went with a smile on his face, while I lay there sniggering a little! And to this day it never fails to make me smile when I think of that!
Anyone else have any fond memories of things they've done to try and brighten their hospital stays?
