A Moment at the Opthamologist
Secretary/Nurse(?) asking about my medical history:
Her: Cardiovascular problems?
Her: Respiratory problems?
Her: Any ‘In-dock-reen’ problems?
Me: (thinking) what is that?? Giving my mom a quizzical look
My mom: Endocrine?
Her: No ‘In-dock-reen’
My mom: I think its endocrine
Her: Oh… I’m not a doctor so I don’t know.
My mom: Yes, she’s type 1 diabetic
Her: And that has to do with the ’In-doc-reen’?
My mom after the appointment: Well, the good news is your eyes are good, the bad news is we’re gonna have to take you to an In-Doc-Reen-ologist, whatever they may specialize in.
