Slip of the Lip

[This is Ryan filling in for Paul, while he’s out doing his thang.]

So yesterday I had an initial consultation with a new doctor (noteworthy because it was my first doctor’s appointment in over three years). Everything went well… it’s a newly remodeled office (just completed last week) and the staff was quite nice. The visit was pretty uneventful aside from a slip of the lip on my part.

As I was describing a couple of symptoms to the doctor, I was trying to say, “… but I don’t experience any shortness of breath.” Instead, it came out, “… but I don’t experience any shortness of breasts. Breasts… *nervous laughter*… I meant ‘breath.'” And to top it off, my doctor is female.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
