New doctor

Today we are asked to write about a Comedy of Errors. I submit this Comedy in Conversation.

Finding medical care in a new town can be frustrating. I was able to make appointments with a dentist and optometrist in the same week. I called to confirm my first one.
“Do you have any concerns for your first visit?” the receptionist asked.

“Just a cleaning,” I said.

“Cleaning? Is that what you said?”


“And what would we be cleaning?”

“Well, my teeth? It’s been six months since my teeth were cleaned,” I said.

There was laughter on the other end of the line. “I’m sorry,” she said when she got through laughing. “This isn’t the dentist, it’s the eye doctor.”

That evening I shared the story with my husband.

“Good thing you weren’t talking to the gynecologist,” he said.

Got something to season my kettle of soup? Stir it in and savor the flavor.
