I’m sick. And I’m sick enough to know that I needed to go to the Dr. today for an ear infection that started a few days ago.
I make the appointment with the nurse practitioner since that was the only way I was getting in today.
It’s fine. I like her a lot.
As I’m waiting, the nurse to the nurse practitioner shows up to take the standard blood pressure, temp, pulse numbers for the chart.
She then asks “Do you still get periods?”
Did I catch the virus that makes me look 15 years older?
The Dr. arrived asks how I am. I tell her that I was fantastic and that I guess it’s my lucky day because I do in fact still get a period.
She asks what’s going on and then I confess “I put coconut oil in my ear and Pinterest made me do it”
She does the usual looking and poking and proceeds to diagnose a sinus infection with a “raging” ear infection.
As she writes some stuff down she asks “Do you need anything else?”
I say “I could use my garage cleaned out”
She says they can do that but it’s going to have to be another appointment.
I know I’m not hearing that well so I say “another appointment?”
And then she sort of whispers while gesturing with her hands in a circular motion around her lady parts and says “You did say g a r a g e right?”
“Oh my god… YOU THOUGHT I WAS USING CODE WORDS FOR MY LADY GARAGE.”
And then she realizes I was serious about like, my real garage, not my lady garage.
And we laughed.
Bwhahahaha! Best conversation with a doctor ever and I have to admit, my mind did go right to your ‘lady garage’.
I’m totally using garage as a euphemism for everything from now on. PLUS, I keep almost buying coconut oil, but then resisting the urge. I need to just buy it already, right?
I\’ve become one of *those* people with it. I have a cough, I take a little, my son has dry skin, put coconut oil on it, my ear was throbbing, used it in there too. I also have put it in my tea. I guess I\’m a fan of using it for everything other than cooking!
I DO wonder just how much of an increase in appointments due to Pinterest related incidents the medical and hair-dressing communities have seen…
I guess I should clarify that I had the ear infection before I tried the coconut oil. It actually helped with the pain but not so sure that it was going to cure it or anything.
At least you didn’t go on to say “You used to be able to park a bus in there!” or something about mold and infestation. That would have been a bit awkward.
bwhahahahahaha!!!! Your garage. ::snicker::
Ha ha ha ha ha, oh man. This is so awesome.
OH MY GOSH. HILARIOUS!!!!
(hope you feel better!)
P.S. Nice tags. And by “tags”, I mean TAGS.
