I Love Our Doctor

Rome Girl was starting to get worried about her blood pressure, so she had me go down with her to our friendly neighborhood doctor this morning.

He examined her and took her blood pressure and told her she was fine, but retaining water.

"I am going to give you a pill," he said in heavily accented English. "You need to take it once a day and then drink a lot. It can be water, wine, beer, whiskey or anything. Just drink a lot of it."

On the way out the door, Rome girl said, "Did you notice that he didn't mention anything about juice? I mean, seriously, did he just give me a prescription for Jack Daniels?"
