So one day I went to visit a patient in a care facility. I had been told that the patient had health problems that made him pretty confused at times, and also he tended to sleep a lot. I went into the room and his wife was visiting also and said it was fine to say hello to him. The patient was dozing. I walked up to his bed and said, "Hello, Mr. X." He opened his eyes, looked right at me, and said, "YOU'RE A SCOUNDREL!" His wife looked a little horrified, not knowing me. I was delighted. "I am," I said. "How did you figure that out so fast? You're really GOOD." He gave me a knowing, mischievous smile that had a bit of a swagger to it. And went back to sleep.
