I C U

My contact prescription is old so I went to the doctor for an eye checkup. I filled out all my paper work, was seated in the checkup room, and left to wait. I entertained myself by looking around the room. I saw the typical eye doctor wall hangings: pictures of the eye, contact lens advertisements, a wall chart, and his diploma. The diploma stood out to me. Most diplomas are printed on letter or legal size paper. This one was at least 2 feet by 3 feet.

GOOD
GRIEF! Why so
big? Does he think I can't
see or something? Oh wait... never mind.

LOL Nice observation. Did you have to drive home with your pupils dialated?

Plus, he is a doctor . . . you know how special they think they are.

Red: I did have to have my eyes dilated...and then drive home. Dangerous! And I didn't even get the "cool" rollup piece of plastic that acts as temporary sunglasses. Um, even more dangerous!

Thom: lol. I'll have to see if I can read his writing.

Hi, this is my first visit. You are very funny. I think doctorate degree diplomas are very big in the US. In some countries it only measures 8x11 and presented in a leather folder with satin strips to keep them in place - very classy. I think the kindergarten diploma should be the biggest. Imagine the courage a young child has to go demosntrate to finish kindergarten.

I never would have thought about it that way.

CES: Thanks for stopping by. And I like your idea of large diplomas for kindergarten. However, that would be really hard to hang on the fridge. :o)

Thinker: but you are the thinker!

Was the license plate # of the truck he got it from in tiny little letters on the bottom?

Oh man. I always go to the eye doctor at Wal-Mart. Never mind what that may or may not say about me. I LOVE walking out of the store with those plastic temporary sunglasses on.

HAHAHAHAHAHA...I love optometry humor. It's only superceded in my book by bathroom humor.


Oh, and humor in uniform.

diesel: I don't know. I couldn't "see" it.

Bone: whatever it says about you, it says the same thing about me. Wal-Mart is where I went.

Jocelyn: I'll try to incorporate more humor in uniform.

I love the real sunglasses you get to wear after you've had LASIK surgery.
