There's Good News Today
There's plenty of blood circulating into your feet he said. There just isn't any blood circulating out.
So where's it going I asked.
Then he trimmed my toenails.
You can come back in three months and have them trimmed again he said.
But what if they grow long before then I asked.
The government only allows you to trim your toenails every three months he said.
Well that makes sense I told him. I'll remind my toenails of that.
So that's about it he said.
But my toe still hurts I said.
Can't be helped he said. The government doesn't allow for that.
But what about pain and suffering I asked.
I don't feel a thing he said.
OK Doc. What could I have been thinking of. You know best. You and the government.
Now we're on the same page he said.
Trouble is we're not reading the same book I said.
See you in three months he said.
