Growing Pains

The following conversation took place in the pediatrician’s office today. The appointment was for Ringo.

Pede: So what’s hurting?

Ringo: My ankle.

Pede: Really? How long has it been hurting?

Ringo: About a year…

Pede: *Blink* *Looks up at me* A year?

Ringo: yeah, about…

Pede, still looking at me: Wow. I’m so glad you rushed in!

You should have said, "That's how hard it is to get an appointment"

I hope you laughed while you stifled the urge to strangle him.

You and my mother should talk, she waited 24 hours to take me to the ER with a severe concussion. That was after swim lessons.
