Not All Stones Are Diamonds

Sunday morning up with the lark, I went jogging in the park. Suddenly I felt pain in my sides, soon I started taking long strides. I went to the doctor immediately, I needed help desperately. The doctor smiled and wrote me some tests. Clinic visits I always detest. The doctor told me I had crystals, no not diamonds the oxalic one. The doctor said wrly "don't worry my son." "I can turn them into small pieces by surgical procedure", the doctor said proudly giving my brain untimely seizures. How was he going to break them small? how were they going to pass? Never could I imagine that such tiny stones could also harass. Not all stones are diamonds, some are kidney stones, The pain these tiny crystals inflict can make you simply atone. Passing these tiny stones was no easy task, no better punishment for all my sins I could ever ask. Finally the stones departed, passing them was not for the softhearted. Don't underestimate these tiny stones, they can make grown ups moan. Eat healthy ,stay fresh and take care of your each bone and please beware of the kidney stones.
