moon walk

We took Clementine to the doctor for her 18-month check-up a few days ago. Her doctor, during the course of the exam, had a bunch of questions for Linette and me. One thing he wanted to know was whether or not Clementine had started walking backward yet. My response to this was, “No, but she can grab her crotch and scream.” He smiled. I thought, at the time, that he got the Michael Jackson reference, but now that a few days have passed, I’m not so sure. What I thought at the time was an “Oh, a moonwalk reference – that’s pretty funnyM” smile, could have really been an awkward “what the fuck did he just say about his daughter’s crotch” smile. Now I’m wondering whether I should call him up and explain.

    I don’t think I’d call him but I would probably try to explain the next time I saw him. I don’t know if that’s the right thing to do but I imagine I’d find myself doing it regardless.

    I guess if he didn’t get the reference, he would have kept up the line of questioning and perhaps prescribed some kind of ointment for her.

    Now you have to keep up a facade of being obsessed with Michael. Next time you bring her in, have her wear just one glove, and you can wear the yellow Thriller eyes.

    The yellow monster eyes might be difficult, but I’m sure that I could find a piece of fabric somewhere to wrap her head up in.

    Specter may not say it, but he’s got to detest Bush for what he’s done to the Republican party.

    Ah, doctor visits. I posted on my most recent with my girls last month. I just *love* the questions they ask, what a riot! Do they teach that in med school?

    Every joke that comes to mind involves child molestation, so I think that, as tempting as it is, I’m going to pass on this one and move on to another thread.
