B'bye

People have their favorite phrases… Paris Hilton thinks she owns "That's Hot." I wouldn't doubt that Homer Simpson's "D'OH!" is copyrighted. And how many people do you know use "Sweet"? I sometimes utter, "My bad." Elke hates that one. Some flight attendant should have copyrighted "B'bye." I like that one; it's simple.

Well, today's Friday, and we'll all hear, “Have a nice weekend.” Being the eternal pessimist that I am, and getting older, the weekends go by very fast. So when it's Friday, it's just about Monday. I know, you think I'm nutso, but on Monday morning, just remember you read it here first. The bright side is that on Monday, it's almost Friday, and payday if you're lucky.

So when patients tell me, “Have a nice weekend,” I say, “Well, how about a whole week, even a month, better yet, have a nice life?” Then technically, you wouldn't have to wish me anything more. It would all be taken care of… forever.

B'bye.

But before I leave, I'm going to start showing you some pictures that I've taken, most in my practice... some entertaining, some educational. The first is what's taken out of a ganglion cyst, the lumpy thing that sometimes pops out at the wrist. It's basically a glob of gelatinous material, but will need surgery to be removed.

Have a nice weekend!

Oops, my bad!

D'OH!
