I went in to the doctor's office this morning. As part of the usual routine, an LPN took my temperature and blood pressure. She next was to take my pulse.

She couldn't find it. Either wrist. She was getting rather tense, so I explained that I'm a lawyer, and therefore don't have a heart; that seemed a satisfactory conclusion. We eventually did a carotid pulse, but even that was difficult.
