He Said, She Said

My husband and I went to the eye doctor during our vacation week and here is the conversation snippet I thought was pretty funny:

Eye doctor:  Why did you come here today?
Me (wife):  For our annual exam.

Eye doctor:  Why did you come here today?
Husband:  My wife made me.

Really, if it wasn't for me, my husband would never go for routine checkups.  Sometimes I think maybe we shouldn't bother, but really, it's good to go I think in case something is wrong.  As long as I have insurance for it so it only costs us $10 each for the exam, I think it's worth it, don't you?  Who handles the doctor appointments in your house?  I bet this chore falls to the wives, am I right?

Thank God he has you Karen. You just keep pushing him to do the things that need doing. Good for you. I'm sure the doctor hears this pretty often.

Have a terrific Silly Sunday. :)

Good for you for keeping Gerard in line when it comes to appointments! What about the dentist though? That's just as important since plaque and gum disease can cause heart disease. :) And yep, I handle the appointments in our house too!

My human's boyfriend sets up his own appointments... usually at the urging of my human! Oddly enough, she doesn't see the doctor anywhere near as much as him, although she does make sure to see the dentist twice a year!

Thanks for the reminder of my looooong overdue appt for the eye doctor. I need to make one!

I am embarrassed to say that my husband is obsessed with doctor's appointments....he is the "good" patient and I am the "bad" one. That is why he looks good and I don't!

I am the opposite of the typical woman, I guess. I hate doctor appointments so I avoid them at all costs. The husband goes much more often that I do.

Your new theme color looks nice!

Karen and Gerard said...

Sandee, Apparently he does, because he didn't even laugh!

Beaded Tail: We both hate going to the dentist so we don't go unless we are in pain from a toothache.

Cat Chat: I'm surprised at that. The eye doctor never bothered me at all--although it is hard to keep my eyes open what that puff of air hits. Hope you go soon!

Rebecca: I'm surprised your husband is better at making appts. than you. Glad you like our new blog background color.

I make mine and the kid's appointments. I figure he's a big boy and can make his own. Plus, I don't know what his schedule is like or when he wants to go.

I wonder what it will be like when the kids are gone? I will probably make his appts too. Sigh.
