Joke of the Day: If someone from the 1950s suddenly appeared, what would be the most difficult thing to explain about life today?

Allee hadn't been feeling very well. She was looking extremely thin and we were kinda getting worried about her. She ended up in the hospital in intensive care. I won't go into detail because I don't know how much she wants to share, but there for a bit things were looking very scary. I had to call Alex who was still in France and he was worried and anxious to get home. He arrived Sunday night. Monday afternoon I texted him to find out how she was doing, I was so concerned. This is what he sent me....Whew, HUGE sigh of relief! I was never so glad to see that smiling face! Love you girl!
