Me: "Do you have any other questions for me?"

Patient: "Yes. Will you marry me?"

Me: [laughs]

Patient: "I'm sorry.  I put you in an awkward position.  You don't want to marry me, but you don't want to upset me by saying no."

Me: "I'm already married."

It would have been a lot more flattering if the patient weren't ninety years old.  And mostly blind. 

Still, it's nice to know I have options!


  1. I love your blog, but really would you not have dated someone back in the dating years because they were blind? It's a little offensive to people with disabilities.

  2. Lol, I just meant it would have been more flattering if he could see what I looked like. Don’t jump to take offense.

  3. I hope I live long enough to say things like that. Looks mean less and less the older you get. I'll bet he can see just fine with his heart.
