The Skin Graft

A married couple were in a terrible accident where the man's face was severely burned. The doctor told the husband that they couldn't graft any skin from his body because he was too skinny. So the wife offered to donate some of her own skin. However, the only skin on her body that the doctor felt was suitable would have to come from her buttocks.

Owing to the sensitive nature of the situation...they agreed that they would tell no one about where the skin came from.

After the surgery everyone was astounded at the man's new face. He looked more handsome than ever! All his friends and relatives raved about his youthful appearance...especially his mother!

One day, while alone with his wife, and overcome with emotion at her sacrifice. He said, "Darling, I just want to thank you for everything you did for me. How can I possibly repay you?"

"My dear," she replied, "I get all the thanks I need every time I see your mother kiss you on the cheek."

"A hundredth of a second here, a hundredth of a second there — even if you put them end to end, they still only add up to one, two, perhaps three seconds, snatched from eternity." ~ Robert Doisneau
