A member of a military band came to the surgeon with a throatache.英语作文
“Let me see your throat. Oh， that’s not so bad. You’ll be all right in a day or two. I think you had better rest a little for a week or so.” And with these words the surgeon gave the man sick-leave.
A week later the surgeon met the bandsman in the street. “How’s your throat？” asked “It’s quite all right now， sir，” was the surgeon. “You can go back to your duty now. By the way. What instrument do you play in the band?” The small drum， sir!” said the bandsman.
