Doc, I Got A Problem

This past week, I had the opportunity to see a cute 8 year-old-boy, who I’ve seen since birth, for his annual well child check-up. As we were wrapping up our delightful visit, I simply asked, “Do you have any questions or need anything?”

He replied, very seriously, “Doc, I have a problem.”

“What’s the problem?” I inquired, a bit concerned.

“I need a new butt,” he responded.

“Oh?” I inquired.

To which he responds, “Mine has a crack in it.” And he promptly died of laughter.

I couldn’t help but laugh. According to his mom, he’s been preparing his joke for the last two weeks. I told him, he’d definitely make a post! How can you not love peds?
