A funny doctor story

I'm skipping class tonight too. This would have been the Advanced Beginner class, and I'm not anywhere close to having the energy for that. Instead I'm going to see "Hunger Games: Catching Fire". The hike in from my car to the theater was tiring enough. Sunday is looking iffy.

Now on to the funny doctor story!

Earlier this week I visited my regular doctor to get a chest X-ray to rule out pneumonia. He and I always sit and chat socially after the medical stuff is done, and this visit was no different. On a previous visit he mentioned that I'm the only man he knows who takes ballet classes. He seems quite fascinated by this. As I was leaving this visit he walked me out to the reception desk, and as I put on my coat he said to the receptionist in an excited tone, "Does this guy look like a ballet dancer? He is! Really!" She answered, "no." I really wasn't expecting this, so I said, "No, I'm not skinny. But I'm not a pro either." And made my exit, stage left.

Weird, eh?
