My Embarrassing Moment At The Doctor’s Office


So I just got back from vacation yesterday.  It was a ‘stay-cation’ actually, I stayed home and got stuff done that I normally don’t have time for.  One of those things was finding a new doctor and setting up an appointment to see said doctor.

I chose a female doctor, so that’s who I was expecting to see when I was brought to the room.  The woman typing my info into the computer asked if I minded if a student doctor sat in on my visit.  I said ‘sure, I don’t mind at all’.  A few minutes later, in walks ‘Tom’, a 25-year-old student, who clearly was a male model in a past life.

Now, I thought Tom was going to be in the room while the doctor conducted my visit.  Nope, it was just Tom.  He was very nice, and started asking me questions about my health.  All was going well until he got to those questions… the lady questions.  If it were anyone else, I would have answered normally with a straight face, but I just could not keep a straight face in front of ‘Tom The Model’.

I started laughing out loud, out of sheer embarrassment, and he laughed along too.  It was impossible for me to remain serious!  I finally was able to get out the words “everything is normal”.  Actually, I think the laughter made everything a little easier!

Finally, the female doctor came in and things got less awkward immediately.  Tom stuck around for the remainder of my visit, and when I was all done, I wished him the best in his future as a doctor, and thought about how lucky his future female patients will be!
