Hello, my friends! Went to the doctor today and when I was asked what was the problem, I said I either had the flu or it was a very good impression of one. "No fever" the nurse said to me in an accusatory tone. My reply, "I can be very sick without running a fever". I smiled and asked after the health of the nurse and the doctor (after all, I AM still breathing!) So...my advice to you is do NOT be your normal cheerful self when you at the doctor's office, instead moan and carry on so they will know you are sick!
On enough medication to knock out a horse, so this post might be a bit unevenly written. (What else is new, right?) HA! The doctor got a flu swab from me but I think she thought it was a waste of time.
I felt like saying, "I told you I was sick!"
Note: in England if you say you are sick, folks kind of step away from you, they think you are going to throw up! Instead, they use the word "ill". We know the word, of course, but still, don't you think most Americans say "sick"?
A good impression- I found this for you!
I have read that Elvis Presley thought this was THE best impression of him that anyone had ever done- Andy Kaufman on "The Tonight Show" in 1977, I think. Elvis died in August of the year...when I heard of his death on the radio, I pulled over on the side of the road. I was that shocked.
