Whatever

Dr. Grumpy: "Do you have any other medical issues?"

Mrs Barph: "I vomit every afternoon at 3:05 p.m. This started in 1987 and I haven't missed a day since."

What happens when the time changes?

Helen said...

WHY 3:05? Please say you asked.

Grumpy, M.D. said...

I didn't ask. Sorry. Because if it ain't my organ system, I don't want to know. And in this case they weren't related. Which is good.

Just a thought--don't schedule him for any 3:05 PM appointments.

The time at the 3rd barf, sponsored by accurist, shall be 3:05pm precisely.

Helen said...

That's ok. It's just as amusing - maybe more so - to picture you moving on as if it were completely normal.

Helen, when they say something insane is when I quickly ask about family history. Change the subject, fast, before they start to give details.

Does she ever visit friends/family (assuming she has them) in a different time zone? 'Cause that would seriously mess with her Daily Bout O' Emesis.

Have her travel to Japan or something... Would she wake up in the middle of the night to throw up then?

Your practice wouldn't by any chance happen to be at Yellowstone National Park, would it?

I'd tell her to stop watching Oprah. I'm suprised she makes it 5 minutes, though.

Medication reaction? Bulimia?

Maha said...

Wait a sec...isn't the vomiting control center (for lack of a better name that I can recall) in the brain? I thought there was a chemoreceptor in one of the cerebral blood vessels that caused vomiting...so wouldn't that technically be considered a neurological problem? Or is this guy just sticking his finger down his throat every day at 3:05pm? Just curious, as always. :-)

And today, I'll be yakking at 3:05, 2:05 Central.

Spring ahead, Projectile vomit back, I always say.

Ironically, my word ver is "cured".
