All shook up

My cell phone rings while I'm with a patient. It's one of my call partners office.


Dr. Grumpy: "Hello? This is Dr. Grumpy."

Voice: "Please hold for Dr. Nerve." (This drives me nuts. WTF can't other doctors dial a damn phone?)

Dr. Nerve: "Hello? Ibee?"

Dr. Grumpy: "Hi. What's up?"

Dr. Nerve: "Can you trade call with me for this weekend? I just found out that my (soft voice) mumble whisper gargle is in town."

Dr. Grumpy: "That should be okay. What did you say was happening?"

Dr. Nerve: "My (whispers) mmph chz fumph is in town."

Dr. Grumpy: "I still can't hear you."

Dr. Nerve: "Hang on, let me close my office door so my staff can't hear me... I said my favorite Elvis impersonator is in town."

You've got to have something to live for, I guess!

Our district just voted an Elvis impersonator out of office as our one of our representatives. He was all shook up, too.

That's awesome. Hey, at least the man has outside interests.

I think this is the single funniest thing you've ever posted on this blog! Hilarious!

Don't Be Cruel, Dr. Grumpy even though Dr. Nerve is nothing but a Hound Dog. Don't Ask Why---just do it.

I guess his office staff has suspicious minds.

At least his choice in call partners is better than his choice in entertainment.

Don't tell me his field of special interest is Parkinsons (I'm all shock up.." or seizures (Shake, rattle and roll...)

I don't know why but I laughed so hard and so long at this one. I mean, laughing out loud for everyone to hear. I totally agree with Miss Chevious.

Hey now, when your favorite Elvis impersonator is in town, It's Now or Never!

He must be a real devotee to have a FAVOURITE Elvis impersonator...

I need the same deal in reverse, to ensure that I am out of town when my mother-in-law is due for a visit!
(i.e. She is not my favorite human being impersonator)

Here's something you didn't know about me, Grumpy (and I am not making this up!) I used to be a back up singer for Elvis impersonators in the Illinois area but once in awhile we would do a convention and I'd have the privilege of backing up worldwide Elvi. I know. I'm cool.
