The other day I was at yet another cancer center – going over my bio with the nurse; the following conversation ensued.
Nurse: I see you have an Oncologist at Local Hospital?
Nurse: And you have a Radiologist at Downtown Hospital?
Nurse: You see Dr. X- he’s your…?
Me: Pulmonary Doctor.
Nurse: Your Cardiologist’s name is Dr….
Nurse: Do you have a family doctor?
Me: (thinking. pausing) Bitch puhlease.
