So, at the Eye Doctor, waiting to see if the Glaucoma Specialist has any argument with the Ophthalmologist.
First time i've ever been in this exam room. It's the one thry see ittty bittty kids in. So there's a teddy bear.
I observe, aloud, 'There's a teddy bear on that shelf!'
Nurse agrees and starts to explain how thry use the toy to assess the visionnnof vety young kids.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. "What's his name?"
She looks at me weird. "It...doesn't, um, have a name. It's a diagnostic tool, not someone's, um, friend."
I mutter, 'All the bears in MY house have names.'
She tries to nonchalantly look at my chart. Figured i would save her the math. "Yeah, I'm 58."
Next time you go there, give him a name. Teddy bears are friends to everyone.
