Naveen had his six month immunizations today. We're a few months behind due to everyone around here being sick. The doctor said he was a bit on the slim side. When she heard that he was a crawling maniac, she conceded that his weight was normal.
Then she asked about Deeg-lan. Three years and numerous obnoxious attempts on my part to correctly pronounce DeCK-lan's name within her earshot and still she refuses to learn.
I really like her, she's a lovely person. Mid to late forties, larger build, short brown hair and single. On my visits we always make a lot of small talk, mostly about her life, her next trip, where she's eating that night, what kind of wine she likes, her favourite TV shows. I have to be really strategic in cutting her off at just the right time if I have health related questions about the kids-which I always do.
She told me again today how she hopes to meet a cute guy on her next trip. Looking around her intake rooms it's no mystery to me why she stays single but it's not something I feel comfortable bringing up. Picture calendars of vacation photos of her and her eighty year old mother. In matching T-shirts or sun visors or tropical vests. Every picture. Her and mom. They always travel together whether it's to a remote island or a cruise. I can just imagine the two of them sitting on the beach under huge hats and umbrellas, lathered up with sunscreen, sipping on enormous fruity drinks.
I can't imagine why men don't approach her on vacation.
Oh and if you're wondering if Shaune is wearing the same shirt as the last time I posted him here. Yes. Was this the same day? No. It's not for me to judge but I will say you can lead a horse to water. You can't make him put on one of the other ten shirts neatly folded in his drawer.
