A guy I know was giving his kid some medical advice because the kid was whining about some real or imagined (as if it makes a difference to me) ailment. The problem was the kid didn’t like the advice being given. It’s not like he was going Marcus Welby on his ass. The guy’s not a brain surgeon in his own profession so this was pretty rudimentary stuff.
“Wipe your nose.”
“Zip your coat.”
“Ask your fucking mother!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
The kid looks at me for help. Wow, I guess the kid really is sick!
“You should listen to your father,” I say. “Although he’s not a doctor he did play one in an after school play date.”
