Subject: The Love Story of Ralph and Karen

> 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 Karen 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.
Karen promptly jumped in to save him. She swam to
> the bottom
> and pulled him out. When the Head Nurse Director
> became aware
> of Karen'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 Karen the news she said,
> 'Karen, I have
> good news and bad news. The good news is
> you're being
> &g t; > 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.'
> Karen replied, 'He didn't hang himself, I
> put him there to
> dry. How soon can I go home?'
