When I called hubby from the hospital to inform him what the doctors were looking for, he was on speaker phone while my son was nearby. …Therefore, the acronym.
Hubby: Hi, what’s going on?
Me: Well, the doctors are doing a CT Scan to look for a BC.
Hubby: (laughs) That’s so silly, of course you don’t have that but ok…. if they want to look.
Mother: Do you know what BC is?
Hubby: Of course I do.
Me: What does the B stand for?
Me: That’s not what they’re looking for.
Mother: What else could the B be?
Hubby: (whispers) Brain cancer.
Me: OMG! REALLY???
Mother: SIL, blood….
Hubby: Ohh. Blood clot, that makes more sense.
