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.

Oops. -ram

Wow, Ryan. You even managed to LOOK like Paul today.

As for your doctor's visit... smooth, buddy... REAL smooth...

I thought stuff like that only happened in sitcoms. Hee...poor thing.

Too bad you weren't in a porn film. A slip of the tongue like that might've gotten you somewhere.

I'm still disturbed seeing Paul's picture on a Ryan ping.

It's happened a few times before, Rob.

I guess I've just repressed those memories. Every time it happens, it makes it harder to forget.

At least you didn't openly hit on her, like my friend did when he got doped up to have his wisdom teeth removed.

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!
