BF and I are pretty literal. we love misspellings, figures of speech, etc.
While in the dr's office receiving the diagnosis of prostate cancer, the dr said 'prostate surgery is a drop in the bucket'. In my mind, I pictured my BF's prostate lying in a stainless steel bucket looking all sad and lonely. For a second, I was horrified, then I almost busted out laughing. BF had a funny look too, and later he said he pictured almost the same thing in his mind.
Second opinion dr (urologist): "that's is what I like to hang my hat on" and I pictured him hanging his hat on my BF's manhood like a coatrack...
We also like to goof around in the dr's office while waiting...Urologist's board certification had us wondering what all those signatures were. facebook fans? college professors? first 10 patients?
stupid? probably...but makes it easier? slightly! :)
