There was a famous painter who started losing her eyesight. Fearful that
she might lose her ability to paint, she went to see the best eye surgeon
in the world. After several weeks of delicate surgery and therapy, her
eyesight was restored.
The painter was so grateful that she decided to show her gratitude by
redecorating the doctor's office. Part of her work included painting a
gigantic eye on one wall. When she had finished her work, she held a press
conference to unveil her latest work of art: the doctor's office.
During the press conference, one reporter asked the doctor, 'What was your
first reaction upon seeing your newly painted office, especially that large
eye on the wall?' To this, the eye doctor responded, "I said to myself
'Thank the Lord, I'm not a gynecologist.'"
