Doctors appointments, holiday parties, and violence
Saw three doctors yesterday.
My day started at 5:30AM with a colonoscopy scheduled for 9AM. This meant a night of disgustingness the night before and then more of the same that morning.
Once I arrived, got right to work.
Doctor: I’m going to give you some anesthesia. It’ll feel like you had some wine. Do you want red or white?
Me: White. I’m more of a rum runner though.
Him: Rum we don’t have. See you in a little bit, Mr. Lo.
Woke up feeling pretty groggy. Got a Starburst afterward so there was that.
After I got home, got dressed and headed over to a completely different doctor’s office for an MRI for my shoulder. Turns out I have a torn infraspinatus in my left shoulder.
Doctor: Do you have any other questions?
Me: About life?
Her: (laughing) I don’t know if I’m qualified to answer all questions on life.
There was another doctor I saw but that’s a different matter. Then it was off to my office for our holiday party.
Having not eaten much in the last few days, devoured my weight in kosher sushi and pasta – an odd mix but perfect for a guy like me.
Co-Worker: You’re here? After seeing the doctor?
Me: THREE doctors. But I never miss a workday when there’s food involved.
Finally, headed out to teach my fencing class. Didn’t make it to bed until about midnight.
All-in-all a long and weird day that I’m glad is over.
Hope you have a much quieter, less eventful, and doctor-free next few days, folks.
