Radiation was quick

Some of them guys have to go there two, three times a day for radiation. The machine I was on wasn't that crowded. It was quick. I'd be in and out within 15 minutes. The first time the guy called me in, "How are you today?" I said, better than nothing. They got a kick out of that. So every time I come in I say hi guys and they'd say, "Hi, better than nothing." Next time I come in, the girl says "How are you today?" I said, well, I got up this morning, so I must be in good shape. They get a kick out of stuff like that.
