Ask a silly question...

So I walk into the doctor's office today for an appointment. I sit down in front of a table filled with old magazines and select one to read until it's my turn. The receptionist looks up from her desk. "Good morning," she says. "Do you have an appointment?"
"No" I replied. "I just stopped in to read the magazines."
Behind her, I hear the doctor laugh. "Oh, I know who that is. Send him in."


  1. LOL!

    I use the old standby after picking up a Newsweek or something. "There has been a break in at the Watergate Hotel?"

    Most don't get it. I may have to change to your reply.

  2. Health advice: Don't read the magazines in your doctor's office. Everyone there is sick with something. Watch them read the magazines, sneeze on them and lick their fingers to turn the pages. They become a Superfund toxic clean-up site of biological threats.

    Take your Kindle or even your smart phone with your reading material. Or contemplate your navel and the meaning of life.

  3. LOL- Sounds like you're a bit TOO well known in that particular office :-)

  4. Smartassery. It's an art. I should know!

  5. It would have only been better if you followed that response up with "Here's your sign"

  6. Now that there is funny, I don't care who ya are...
