This is an offshoot of the original Liam & Janet blog. That blog has become overrun by Liam's inability to keep his mouth shut when something annoys him. The serious rants there seemed incongruous with the humor columns. The plan for the humor columns continues to be to post a new one every Friday, plus occasional extras when the mood strikes.

Medical Misadventures

I was at my doctor's office today and we were discussing, among other things, the sorts of tests I should start looking forward to now that I'm past 40, and which ones I can safely enjoy putting off until I'm over 50, and the question came down to the dreaded PSA test.

And I can't help imagining that when you go for that test, the doctor comes in and says "I'm not a doctor, I just play one on TV, but remember to talk to your kids about drugs. Before it's too late. The more you know."

That took me a full minute to comprehend. Picture me, staring at the screen, a puzzled look on my face ... then a loud groan and my head crashes to the table.

Thank you.

Heh. Yeah, every so often a little bit of humor pops into my head, and I think "I should write humor again, and work that into it", and then I either don't get to it or I sit down and try and find I still don't feel like I can do it without forcing...

So this time, I just thought I'd throw it out there as it was. And I actually am glad you had that reaction. I think this particular bit of fluff wouldn't have quite the same effect if it were too quickly obvious.

Thanks for stopping in, Ross!
