Um, Hello? I'm Standing Right Here

Yeah, so last weekend Channing did a heart day screening at a local hospital. He did free spinal screenings and signed people up to come into the office for a full exam. Well, one particular couple of ladies he signed up called me a couple of days before their appointment. They had lots of questions about their consultation and kept me on the phone forever. Towards the end of their questioning, they kept going on and on about the "cute young man" that checked them. I told them several times that he was the doctor in our clinic. They seemed less worried about that and more worried about talking about how cute he was. That was fine, but I was super busy and wondering if they were ever going to let me go. Finally, they did.

Cut to their appointment day. I was late getting to the office because I had to take Tristan to school (but let's get real...I'm late every day. It's just one of the perks of working for my sweet hubby, plus I don't like waking my kids up too early in the mornings). By the time I got there, they were scheduling their next appointment. As I walked in with my baby and big pregnant self, the women start going on and on (again) about how cute he is (except to him this time). The conversation went like this:

Lady: You are so cute. I bet you're married. You probably are...
Channing: I am.
Lady: ...but I have a sweet niece that you would be perfect for. You are so cute. She has a boyfriend, this is actually her mom (the other lady), but I don't like her boyfriend. You are so cute and would be perfect for her.

Um, hello lady. I'm standing right here. Yeah, she didn't seem to notice me at all. She was way more concerned with setting up her sweet niece (who already has a boyfriend) with her newly acquired, married chiropractor. Hilarious!

Working with the public is so entertaining! :) We have a couple of other women who come in the office and have been for the past couple of years. They always talk about how cute Channing is, to me, but always assure me that I have "nothing to worry about". They are more like sisters to him. Um, K, ladies. Thanks for that reassurance. Seriously. People crack me up! :)

That's so funny...I always thought he'd be perfect for my niece! ;)... Who can help but love Chang?? I don't think you have anything to worry about. :) On another thought, did you know that you've had 62 people in Jordan read your blog since the beginning of November? Seriously?? That's very interesting...I was just looking at your map thingy. Love you!!

Well, everybody loves your hubby. That IS funny! It's also a compliment... in a weird, sick-o sort of way. :0

Beck, I wish I could boast that I'm popular all over the world, with people from all walks of life, but my Jordan reader is my super sweet missionary friend, Rachel. She, her husband and son live in Amman, Jordan. Isn't that cool?
