Listening to my wife
"What do you mean, you didn't call the doctor for an appointment?" the ever lovely and talented Mrs ERJ asked. I felt a bit like a mouse a wee bit too close to a hawk for comfort.
"I didn't call the doctor for an appointment because I feel better this morning." I said, very reasonably.
"You always feel better in the morning." Mrs ERJ reminded me. So much for logic.
"You have been sick for two weeks. I get that colds take a week to get over. Maybe ten days at the outside. But I sleep with you and I am telling you, 'You are sick.' " Mrs ERJ said.
"Will you go if I call and get an appointment?" she asked.
They know her at the doctor's office. I was ushered into an examination room forty-five minutes later.
I texted Mrs ERJ after the appointment. "They gave me some advice."
"What was the advice?" she responded.
"Keep listening to your wife." Then I texted. "I will be a few minutes. I have to pick up to scripts at the drug store."
GUYS: The moral of the story is that when our wife tells us we ain't quite right, it is worth listening to her.
