I Just Have To Shake My Head

Yesterday W. had an appointment with his ENT. W. has always been prone to nosebleeds (remember this?) and he has been getting them very frequently in the past month. The end of last week, I believe he got one almost every night. In the middle of the night. Not good for him or for me. The lack of sleep, quite honestly, kind of makes me a bit of a grump. So, I knew it was time to see the doctor again for another round of cauterizing.

I needed to fill in some paperwork, because you know how doctor's LOVE their paperwork, and W. began coughing. It wasn't a bad cough, he said he had a tickle in his throat. I told him that I thought there was a water fountain in the hallway.

He leaves and I hear his footsteps on the other side of the wall. I hear him stop. I hear him run down the hall. I then hear him run up the stairs. Yes, actually HEAR him. I hear him above me, running down the second floor hall. I am going to pound him. I shake my head, he sounds like an elephant in a library. I continue filling out the STACK of papers. Jeez, can't they just look in his file?

I suddenly hear jumping down.each.and.every.step. I smile at the receptionist. More running, getting louder, then the clomping feet stop.

What the heck is he doing?

About three minutes goes by and finally the door opens and he reappears. The front of his shirt is wet.

"What in God's name are you doing?"

"Well, there was no water fountain on this floor." Yea, I got that.

"And there was no water fountain on the upstairs floor." Okay, I got that too.

"So I just got a drink from the fountain outside the door." Hence the soaked shirt.

"That's a wishing well fountain you knucklehead!"

It must have something to do with the Y chromosome. Is it just a boy thing or should I have him evaluated?

OMG - too funny!!!!

It must be a boy thing. This morning I heard my husband yell at my three year old "get your head out of there! What are you doing?". The response was, "Just saying hello to my poo poo". He had his head in the toliet bowl! My husband replied, without missing a beat," that is gross, and you say goodbye to poo poo and just flush!"
