But It Is Ours, and that Is All that Matters!






They were waiting for the news about the newborn. 


The doctor came.


- So, doctor, where is it?


- I thought I should prepare you first. The nurse will arrive with it in a few seconds.


- So?


- Your baby does not have the arms, both arms.


He stares at her, she stares at him. They both say: It is OK, but it is ours, and that is ALL that matters!


- Oh, well, it also does not have the legs, both legs.


They again stare at each other and then say, after a pause: But it is ours, and that is ALL that matters.


- Oh, well, it ALSO does not have the torso.


- What? 


Longer pause, much longer. 


- So, doctor, what is it that it has got?


- An ear: It is a big ear!


They stare at each other and go again: It is ours and that is all that REALLY matters. Anything else?


- Oh, yes: It is deaf!
