Hola. Hope you are well.
Or in honour of the news that Polish is now the second most spoken language in England, Hello. Nadzieję, że dobrze. (blame Google translate should this not be correct).
I had a doctor’s appointment earlier this week, it also coincided with a departmental meeting at work. Despite actually having a doctor’s appointment, as I was mentioning it to my boss, I was struck by how much it sounded like a lie. I reckon I would have been more convincing if I’d have said I was going for a job interview.
My visit to the doctor’s was due to a lump on my shoulder. Whilst there I mentioned that my friend at work had suggested it could have been caused by the strap on my (man) bag. I’m not sure how much trained medical professionals enjoy patients bringing unqualified opinions to their surgery. Anyway, I continued by suggesting I could put my strap on the other shoulder, (with the intention of seeing if the lump goes down). He laughed and said, “So you can get a lump on the shoulder”. It was quite a good line and we both laughed but I’m not sure where I stand on doctors cracking jokes (especially at my expense). Feel free to let me know when you’ve been met with comedy in an inappropriate setting. You can contact me via the comments button.
To get my own back, next time I’m doing a comedy gig, I’m going to introduce some kind of medical procedure as part of my act. That’ll learn him.
Til next time, stay safe!
