Wit under extreme adversity

So my father is very weak and the kind nurses come in:

Nurses: Are you comfortable Mr Balbin
Dad: doesn’t reply, his eyes are closed and he is uncomfortable
Nurses: We will move you around to a more comfortable position
Dad: says nothing
Nurses complete the re-arrangement and ask ‘Are you okay Mr Balbin, does anything hurt
Dad: only my pocket

For most of my life, I've enjoyed being a computer science professor in Melbourne, Australia, as well as band leader/singer for the Schnapps Band. That being said, being a Zayda trumps it all. My high schooling was in Chabad and I continued at Yeshivat Kerem B'Yavneh in Israel.
