In the Olden Days
I have been going to this new chiropractor for a couple of weeks now out at Preventative Health. After struggling since late July with sciatic and lower and back pain, I am finally getting some relief - yay! Yesterday I had an appointment and since Ben had allergy shots an hour later, I took him along. So the chiropractor was chatting with Ben while she worked on me. She told Ben that when she was a little girl she used to get allergy shots, too. She then added that after she would get shots, her doctor would give her a little toy. Ben immediately interjected, "Oh, you mean in the olden days?" He was dead serious! Of course, that cracked both Dr. Carlson and me up.
After she left the room to get the ultrasound machine that she uses on my back, Ben immediately began questioning me, "Why were you guys laughing? Shouldn't I have said that?" Oh, the joys of the ultra-serious, black and white autistic mind...
