If it’s a plummy pollie, it’s “Hearar, Hearar” or something like that. If it’s a pollie from the East End, it’s probably ” ‘ear, ‘rear“.
Be that as it may, that has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with todays little ramble.
Three weeks ago, I said farewell to my local GP, Doctor Ping Nee Lee, I was sorry to see her leave. An excellent, caring doctor, who I found, very easy to talk to, and to obey. Well up to a point.
Doctor Francis, who is in command at the Forum Medical Centre, was extremely sorry to lose her, and told me that he hopes she will return sometime in the future, when all her obligations have been taken care of; was going to say fulfilled, but then I’d have sounded a bit like the aforementioned pollies, with a plum stuck in my mouth.
I knew she was leaving, just didn’t know when, when I went to see her on the Wednesday, that’d be the 31st January. She gave me a good going over. Gave me my annual referral to the podiatrist, and also a referral to get my ears tested; something I had not requested, but she felt I needed and insisted on my going.
How could I not agree?
As I was leaving she wished me well and said “Goodbye”, this was her last day, and my last appointment, we shook hands, I said nothing. I had something stuck in my throat, and my eyes were kind of glazed over and I departed, somewhat dis-spirited. 😥
Pretty selfish of me in a way, she was leaving to pursue higher qualifications and experience to become an even better doctor.
There are a lot of unknowing people out there, will get the gift of Doctor Ping Nee Lee in years to come.
Anyway, I kept looking at this damned referral to the audiologist, off and on, over the next couple of weeks, then decided I’d pop along and let them have a go at me.
The first time I called in they gave me an hearing test and here’s the result
Seems I need some sort of hearing aide, can’t imagine why 😈 😛
Kind of reminds me of Spike Milligan’s epitaph, (which of course, he wrote) “See, I told you I was sick!” and I’ve been telling y’all for yonks that I’m hard of hearing, so please type louder! 😈 😛 🐻
