The Reflex

I’ve not had a physical for many years, so this morning was my appointment to finally see a doctor in this country, and have a check-up. I was a little concerned about my recent bout of numerous colds and flus, especially as I’ve probably only had 4 or 5 over the last 20 years. Everything went well (pending blood results), but I was concerned about a comment that the student doctor made when she was examining me:

Dr. Kirsten: OK, I’m just going to test your reflexes now.
Eddie: No worries, test away.
Dr. Kirsten: (tap) Ooooh . . . (tap) Wow . . . (tap) You have really great reflexes.
Eddie: Why, thank-you.
Dr. Kirsten: Seriously, we usually only see reflexes like that in young girls.
Eddie: Huh?
Dr. Kirsten: Oh, that’s a compliment, believe me.
Eddie: Riiiiight.

Mmmmhmmm. So, no messing with Eddie and his little girl-like reflexes.
