I went to the doctor this morning. After the nurse finished writing down everything I’m allergic to, my height, weight and medications, she said,
“Ok, go ahead and get undressed and the doctor– Have you met the doctor before?”
“Yes,” I answered, appreciating her concern that I might feel uncomfortable undressed in front of a doctor I hadn’t met before. “I’ve met the doctor. And I would love for her to see me naked.”
The nurse stopped walking to the door, turned and stared blankly at me.
“It was a joke,” I explained.
“…The doctor will be in shortly,” she replied.
Geez. That was awkward.
