What's Up Doc?
I just have to give a shout out to this young doctor near the local clinic where I live. His first day on the job and I brought him 24 people from the village. He was inundated, but survived for the next 6 hours seeing them all, taking meticulous notes. The second day I brought him 20 more. He was floored, and not as happy to see me. But he didn't complain a bit. All he said, "I think it might help if we make a set day where we know you're coming."
The nurses on the other hand, jokingly gave me a slashed throat sign and told me they no longer wanted anything to do with me. They said I was killing them. I'm thinking fresh-baked brownies will help restore whatever damage I've done...
I asked them if they knew how many more people I'd be bringing in the morning, and they all looked up at me in pure silence. All paper shuffling ceased.
"Zero." I smiled. They all resumed breathing.
Dr. Yves Glaude. Good job sir. God sees your heart.
