And I’ll bet she still does!
I married a veterinarian, and my gawd what I have to put up with. The dogs and I all run and hide when we see her with a thermometer!
I’d let Janis examine me any time she wants.
She who must be obeyed believes its not the aspirin that helps, but the glass of water, as in “You’re probably dehydrated, just drink a glass of water”
Wonder if they ever play ‘turn your head and cough?’.
I bet Arlo would be glad to play doctor too
I can imagine them playing “Doctor”
Arlo: “doctor, ain’t there nothin’ I can take?” “doctor, to relieve this headache”
Janis: “You put the lime in the coconut, you drink ‘em bot’ up”
And in case you’re looking for an ear worm https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kV16-NzzXKc
She looks more like the “Seven Minutes In Heaven” type of girl.
I think this is one case where Arlo and Janis both were referring to the childhood version.
the comments here remind me of the Monty Python skit “wink wink nudge nudge, know what I mean ?” : )
I swear! JJ must have me and my wife on camera, 24-7!!!
It’s not a too-muh.
As kids if we played “doctor”, our parents had a lot to say about it. Many kids learned about the birds and the bees by playing “doctor”.
Playing a bit of “doctor” might distract her?
I got caught and punished many times for playing Doctor. But I loved it and kept doing it anyhow. I was a very very curious child.
It could be your wife…
Husband crawls into the bed and hands his wife two pills.
Wife: What are these for?
Husband: Your headache.
Wife: I don’t have a headache.
Husband: GOTCHYA! wicked grin
The next strip will be four panels of him smiling. ;o)
My wife started “practicing medicine” my senior year in college – before I even got accepted to medical school.
Husband expects me to be an expert doctor for him. I stuck his head back together when he split (tiny split) it on the bottom of an electric saw (not on the blade, on the base) after making sure that he did not have a concussion. If he needs to take something for pain he asks me – aspirin, tylenol, red or blue? I figured out how to be able to put “band aids” on injuries on his legs which seem to be allergic to regular “band aids” or plastic or fabric adhesive tape. I joke that I went to the medical school of St Elsewhere, ER (the second ER series that was a drama, not the first one that was a comedy), Chicago Hope, etc. We were watching Grey’s Anatomy last week and I commented that I would never use anything that the do or say on that show as they don’t seem to pay enough attention to the medical end of the show.
