Have you ever looked at someone and liked what you saw…despite being otherwise taken?
Don’t lie. Everyone has. Whether it’s a celebrity or a person in real life…say it it with me: e-v-e-r-y-o-n-e has. If you’re still shaking your head ‘no,’ you’re only lying to yourself, so go ahead and leave, ‘cuz ain’t nobody got time for that. (For the record, my husband has the hots for Sofia Vergara. My celebrity crush changes at the drop of a hat.)
My husband hurt his back recently trying to get our 6lb dog into bed. She backed away when he went to reach for her. So he stretched a little more and pulled a muscle in the process. Ouch. After a day of not getting better, I convinced him to see a doctor. Being relatively new to this area, I picked the first internist who had an opening that same day. Half a mile away from his practice, I notice his picture’s on the billboard. Odd, for such a small town.
We arrive and fill out all the necessary paperwork. And wait. Finally we get called back. Then we wait another 20 minutes before the doctor comes in. Just as we’re about to complain…
Helloooooo doctor. He’s handsome alright, and he knows it. He probably spends at least an hour at the gym every night, and looks about our age. He spends about 10 minutes talking to us about my husband’s back injury. Asking him how he hurt it. Where does it hurt? Does it hurt when you do this? Does it hurt when you do that? Etc, etc. It’s as if he didn’t understand, or if he believed my husband was there to feed some sort of pain meds addiction. Either way, he was getting uglier by the minute. (Yeah right).
20 minutes of questioning later, he finally prescribes some pain medication. As the conversation is winding down, my husband asks the doctor about his finger. The doctor’s middle finger was bandaged and had a splint on it. The doctor all of a sudden gets animated and says, “Dude! Oh my God! It was so retarded….” and continues to ramble on.
Um, I’m sorry. Aren’t you a doctor? Aren’t doctors normally educated on what’s OK and what’s not OK to say…even on a professional level?! Last time I checked, retarded is not only NOT OK to say on a “politically correctness” level, but it’s also NOT OK to say by regular little people like me.
Doctor X, congratulations, you are officially not attractive anymore. You’re a DB.
