The Wrong End
One very busy day in the office, with all the examining rooms full, the waiting room full and, of course, the phone ringing urgently, I had the patient all ready for her paps and pelvic examination. At the propitious moment of insertion of the speculum, I said, “Say ‘Aah.’”
“What did you say?” she replied.
There’s no graceful way out of that situation.
