A woman had problems thinking and making decisions, so she went to see her doctor. After running a series of tests, the doctor informed her that her head was filled with rocks.
“Is that a serious condition?” she asked with concern.
“It’s not life-threatening, if that’s what you mean,” the doctor replied. “But it can make it difficult to function, as you’ve found.”
“What can be done about it?” the woman asked.
“The only treatment is to open your skull and remove the rocks,” the doctor said. The woman consented to the treatment and the doctor scheduled her for surgery.
She was groggy for a bit after she woke up from the anesthesia, but her head was finally empty and she was able to think clearly for the rest of her life.
