Doctor Doctor Does Gotcha.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 11:48 am

Early yesterday morning I stopped by Doctor Doctor’s office so that he could check on how I’m faring with the Mother of All Summer Colds and the Eye Snot. Here’s how it went:

DD: So, how are you feeling?

Jimbo: Considerably better. Still a little fatigued, but I figure that will pass in a few more days.

DD: Good. How are your eyes feeling?

Jimbo: Much better. I’ve been doing the drops, and I have a few more days to go with them.

DD: (Looks into my eyes) Good. Are you having any trouble putting the drops in?

Jimbo: Funny you should ask. As a matter of fact, I’m not too good at that.

DD: Well, there is something new out that I could prescribe to you that should make it much easier for you.

Jimbo: Really? What is that?

DD: It contains the same active ingredient to treat your eyes, but it comes in suppository form.


DD: (shit-eating grin)

Jimbo: You’re shitting me.


Turns out that Doctor Doctor is also Blog Reader Blog Reader.

  7. So there is really a direct path from the head to the ass. I always knew it.

  8. Accept my oily benediction:
    Truth is stranger far than friction.

    And on those rare days when you Get Lucky,
    Don’t forget the Jelly from Kentucky.

    It does not taste good on your Bread;
    But helps things slip ‘n’ slide in Bed.

    O, I suppose a suppository,
    Might be a taste of Purgatory.

  12. The Doc got me once too. I was having some issues with a pinched nerve in my shoulder. So I was demonstrating to Doc how when I reached for something it caused me grief.
    Me: “When I move it this way, it hurts up here.”
    Doc: “Then don’t move it that way!”

    Asshole. We both got a good laugh out of it though. I’m sure he had been waiting years to use that line.
