Sean & Turtle Dove visit the Doctor.

Yesterday I took Turtle Dove to the Dr. because she had been complaining about her ear hurting and it was her left ear which has had chronic problems (ear drum has burst 3 times).

After waiting for about 45 minutes we are finally seen by the Dr. As the Dr. is about to leave the room, Turtle Dove says "Daddy, I am so thirsty." I say "Ok, I am thirsty too....you've been such a good girl that we'll stop at Wawa on the way home and you can pick out any type of drink you want...."

PAUSE (Dr. standing in the hallway)...

Turtle Dove says, "I want a BEER." ***PAUSE*** Dr. looks at me.....thankfully, Turtle Dove clarifies without any prompting from me....."you know, the kind of BEER that kids can drink....what's that called - root beer?"

Phew! I thought I was about to get carted off to jail. The Dr. & I chuckle.

As it turns out, there is no ear infection. After leaving work 2 hours early, sitting in a waiting room for 45 minutes, and wasting $25 on the co-pay, I was ready for a real beer!
