There was once an old woman and she lived...

There was once an old woman and she lived all alone. One stormy winter she got a very bad cold, and got a very bad pain in her chest. She tried a lot of cures to cure the cough. At last she called the doctor. He gave her a blister, and told her to put it on her chest.
Next day the doctor called to see her. He met her at the door and said, How is your cold today". Ah sure said she not a bit better. I had no chest to put the blister on, only a box. Look it is sticking to it yet, and I am not a bit better.
