How to make your surgeon laugh…

When your reconstructive surgeon has to take topless photos of you, and launches into huge reassurances about the fact that he is NOT including your face in the photos, it is (judging by reaction) apparently quite amusing to say:

“You mean we are not using this bout with cancer to launch my new career in porn?”

Yep, that’s what crabby me said today.  To the most conservative and straight-laced man I have ever met.  I caught him off guard to say the least — and got a laugh out of him.  Hey, if you’ve got to go through 10 pages of scary potential side effects of surgery, you might as well go for the laugh. 🙂
