"So, Marty," the doctor says to one of his psychiatric patients, "I see by your chart that you've been recommended for dismissal. Do you have any idea what you might do once you're released?"

Marty thinks for a moment, then replies, "Well, I went to school for computer programming. That's still a good field, good money there."

"But on the other hand, I thought I might write a book about my experience here in the hospital, what it's like to be a patient here. People might be interested in reading a book like that.

"In addition, I thought I might go back to college and study art history, which I've grown interested in lately, or maybe web site design."

Dr. Leroy nods and says, "Yes, those all sound like intriguing possibilities."

Marty replies, "And the best part is, in my spare time, I can continue being a teapot and post stuff to the news groups."
