Gracie’s Day at the Doctor’s OfficeJune 13, 2009
George: What did you do today?
Gracie: Well, I went to the beauty shop and I met Clara Bagley and she was going to the doctor so I went along with her.
George: Well, that was very nice of you.
Gracie: As soon as I got to the doctor’s office I knew he was no good.
George: He was a bad doctor?
Gracie: Yeah, all his patients were sick.
George: You’re very observing.
Gracie: He has a beautiful blond nurse and even she was sick.
George: She was sick, too?
Gracie: Yeah, she kept begging him to take out her appendix.
George: The nurse wanted her appendix taken out?
Gracie: Yeah, every time she went into his private office I could hear her saying, “Now, doctor, please. Cut it out!”
George: What was the matter with Clara that she had to see a doctor?
Gracie: Well, I think it was to have the dents taken out of her knees.
George: She had dents in her knees.
Gracie: Yes, because every time I looked in the office he was pounding them out with a little rubber hammer.
George: I’ll explain that to you later.
Gracie: So while she was in the doctor’s office I was in the waiting room and I cheered up all the patients.
George: I knew that you would, yes.
Gracie: Oh, and wait ’til I tell you. There was one little boy sitting all by himself and he looked so sad. So I brought him around and made everyone shake hands with him.
George: And that made him feel better?
Gracie: Yes, he almost forgot he had the measles.
George: Your friendliness was very contageous.
Gracie: Yes, I helped the nurse, too; I answered the phone for her.
George: I see.
Gracie: Someone called up and wanted to know if a man 85 years old could have Rickets. And I said, “Oh, sure let him have as much as he wants as long as he chews them well.”
George: You were a real big help down there today.
Gracie: Yes. Oh, and there was a doctor in the next office whistling, and…
George: This doctor was whistling?
Gracie: Yes, and the nurse said that was Dr. Brown the famous obstritian.
George: I see.
Gracie: She said last year he had 260 babies. So I said, “I bet his wife isn’t whistling.”
