On this particular day, Bob was suffering from a bout of depression and called his good friend Frank to come over to cheer him up.
When Frank arrived and walked in, he was surprised to see Bob looking awful and wearing a blanket.
“Are you coming down with a cold?” asked Frank.
“Oh no,” answered Bob, “I got this blanket from my church. It is kind of a security blanket, to remind me that they offer comfort, support and the warmth of love.”
“So why do you still look so awful?” questioned Frank.
“I don’t know. Maybe it is because the world is getting so crazy. Or, maybe it is something in me,” replied Bob. “Tell me. Why is it that you are always so happy and full of vitality?”
Frank thought about it for a moment then said, “My church doesn’t offer blankets but something much, much better.”
“What is that,” asked Bob?
Frank’s reply was blunt. “Enemas.”
