Interlude II

"I really appreciate your taking the time to take me to my CT scan, Dad," I told him as we waited for the nurse to call me back.

"No problem. Of course, I'm missing what might be an important meeting that I wouldn't want to go to anyway, so actually, having to take my daughter to the doctor is a really good excuse," he replied.

"Well, glad to see you're getting some use out of your daughter's painful and chronic condition," I said with heavy irony.

"Yeah," he chortled happily, "It's almost as good an excuse as when I was sick, except without all the pain and blood and stuff!"

We looked at each other for a second.

"Oh, THAT'S going in the blog."
