Whatever

Mrs. Snot: "The sinus doctor said I have inflamed tornadoes in my nose."

Dr. Grumpy: "You mean inflamed turbinates?"

Mrs. Snot: "Yeah, whatever."

That reminds me of "fireballs in my Eucharist" (fibroids in my uterus)!

Perhaps she does have tornadoes in her nose... Did you ask her to blow her nose and see if swirling winds of death came spewing out? Hmm? Well Didja? Bet ya'd feel pretty bad when those tornadoes came out and destroyed everything around you...

Either way, gotta love what the doctor SAYS versus what the patient HEARS... can often provide a good laugh.

This is exactly why I think doctors should write down their dx! But then I think about doctors' handwriting and wonder if it would do any good...

At least she didn't have inflamed tomatoes in her nose

Bored Mum - it's a Dr. Grumpy shopping trip!

I did this to my son's allergist's nurse but I warned her up front. She had asked what we were using for the eczema patches on his legs and I told her this wasn't the name of it but I always saw the name as acetone. She knew what I meant right away.

It's really Alclometasone - had to go grab the tube to spell it out. Sort of looks like acetone, right?

Agree with Frank up there.
How WILL you feel if tornadoes DO come out his nose..?? Huh? Huh?
