Six Sentence Story: Patient

I tell you, I can't make this stuff up.  This week's Six Sentence Story prompt:  "patient." (Permission was obtained to share this experience.)  

A man in scrubs pulled back the curtain, rushed into the room and, taking one look at the young adult, asked disappointedly, "Did I miss it?"

"Yeah."

"How did the other doctor get your jaw back into alignment?"

"He just grabbed each side of my mouth and yanked with all his might."

"And how did you dislocate your jaw in the first place?"

"I won the 'How many Tootsie Rolls can you shove in your mouth' contest."

    1. I can't remember if this happened before or after the shoulder injury when he and Tommy were mountain biking. :-) Boys certainly make life interesting, don't they?

  3. Too funny... except to mom at the moment who had to make the frantic drive there to seek assistance for her son, following his award winning Tootsie Roll performance!! Never a dull moment in the life of mothers, even once the kids are grown! :-) This was a fun read!

    1. Is it too awful of me that, although I did feel bad for the patient, I also found the humor in the situation at the time?

  4. Ha. A very funny story, and one you could possible make up, but it is so much funnier knowing it really happened. I'm guessing doctors, like teachers, have a million stories to tell. Still smiling.

    1. I suppose I should have put in the standard disclaimer, "Don't try this at home!"

    1. I've read a lot of parenting books in my days, but still haven't found one that perfectly prepared me for everything. :-)

  9. :D Now this gave me a chuckle!
    There is no way I'd put a tootsie roll in my mouth nowadays as it would surely pull out a filling or two. But a mouthful? LOL Never!
    Very humorous 6 Kristi.

    1. OH, and not just any mouthful. I don't remember the exact count, but I want to say 35 or 40!
