The Love Story Of Ralph And Edna

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 Edna 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.

 Edna promptly jumped in to save him. She swam to the bottom and pulled him out. When the Head Nurse Director became aware of Edna’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 Edna the news she said, ‘Edna, I have good news and bad news. The good news is you’re being 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.’

 Edna replied, ‘He didn’t hang himself. I put him there to dry. How soon can I go home?’
