How apt!

I was just watching a re-run of Dinnerladies written by Victoria Wood, as I have my morning coffee.

Julie Walter's character came out with a classic quote: "that's the fantastic thing about the NHS, you can slip freely into a coma for as long as you want, without worrying about running up a big bill!"

So go for it folks, Myxodaema coma here we come - it's free at the point of delivery ...... Should we assume Victoria has first hand experience of the "your bloods are normal" saga??????

No truer word spoken in jest!




It made me laugh.

'Your bloods are normal" - you are in a coma and unfortunately are unable to take in the 'good news'.
