Number Two's (Three's, Four's Five's Sixes and Seven's)

One of the perils of being married to a doctor is the weird and wonderful things that I find on my computer screen, and/or on the printer. Tonight I was met with the following delight -

"What in the .....?!" I exclaimed - only to be met with the answer, "I'm doing a clinical presentation at the meeting tomorrow night, I could print these posters off for everyone, and have them laminated." These things, it appears, are very important. It wouldn't be beyond the realms of possibility to see one of these being framed and put up on the wall in some doctor's consulting room (if you want to really educate yourself about such important matters, the picture enlarges if you click on it).

The important thing is to make sure that this particularly vivid educational tool is hidden from the sight of Boris, Norris and Doris - who would not only find it absolutely hilarious, but would insist on an undue level of clinical reporting over the coming months. This is something I can probably do without. One thing is clear however - the kids telling us that they are off for a 'number two' is no longer going to be considered scientifically accurate, after all, it might be a three, four, five, six or seven!

You are right, of course, anonymous.

Lacking the inspiration to write anything truly profound, I just wrote whatever drivel came to mind. I suppose you could say I was just going through the motions.....

Well, I've been gone a bit and here just returned to see that you're blog has gone to the toilet....


Actually, being in the medical profession I can appreciate this...it also reminds me of an email from long ago listing descriptions such as 'rabbit pellits', 'cow pies'...I could go on, but I won't. ;)
(at least it's taken my mind off the current politics, you know, trading one stinky subject for another...)

Number 2 looks rather painful. Number 4 looks preferable I think.

If you want a nicley printed and laminated copy of the "Bristol Stool Form Scale" for YOUR bathroom, just speak to my wife...
