In the 'hood!
Ha Ha Ha!
I had an interesting experience today - I took my best friend SP's son to the doctor.
I've never taken a child to the doctor before (not really a child he's 13 soon to be 14).
Thank goodness he knew where he was going - I wouldn't have gotten him there in time if I had been navigating.
I'm directionally challenged - I admit it.
Anyway, they ask A LOT of questions. Questions that I didn't know - questions that the answers, I would have thought, would have been in the computer.
Like - are you allergic to anything, how tall are you, etc...
After all he'd been there before.
Good thing he knew the answers. I sure as hell didn't.
So basically I was the chauffeur - he did all the talking. I'm really glad it wasn't the 3 year old I was taking to the Dr.
I would have really sucked at that, and most likely they would have called CPS on me for not knowing the basics. You know questions like, what's his birthday?
Anyway - it was a good time, he's a good kid and very capable. Who knew kids were so very time consuming and costly. That 3 hour visit cost about 250 in co-pays. But it turned out he did fracture his thumb.
So the visit did last longer and cost more than anticipated.
I still don't know what I'm going to rename the blog. Maybe I'll have this as one page and my American experiences as another....
I'm thinking, I'm thinking....
