Making A Tit Of One's self

One of the refugees has a chesty cough
I had run out of antibiotics
So I rang the vets
Booked with the receptionist to collect some
And drove up to the surgery late this morning.
The receptionist must have been on her break for only George Clooney
( the GOB smackingly good looking vet) was sat behind the desk eating a sandwich
I straightened my hair and gave him one of my best smiles
And before I could say anything, he stood up and sang out a lusty
" Mr Gray!" 
And suddenly  I went all silly realising that he had actually remembered my name

" you have a good memory for faces, I haven't been in for ages"
I wittered.
George shook his handsome head
" Not really" he answered in his deep chocolate voice
and  picking  up the bottle of antibiotic from the counter,
he added simply and somewhat wryly

" Your name is on the bottle"

  5. D'you think he'll pose for a photo? We'd like to know just why you turn to jelly - and whether you're justified.

  6. If he'd been a bit quicker-witted, he would have said "Oh, I never forget a face - especially one as interesting as yours."

  8. I just sussed you out... You don't really love animals, you just love the attentions of a gobsmackingly good looking vet. What next are you ordering... ear drops for the hens?

    If you wore your Fair Isle tank top John, just sit back and wait. How could he resist your boyish charm.

  14. that's kind of like seeing someone hunky wave at you, you smile big and wave back, only to discover he's waving at the guy/gal behind you!

    Don't worry - with your menagerie someone else will need something from the vet before long.

  15. And did I ever tell you I once had a dentist who looked like Christopher Reeve (in his Superman days)? He knew it, too - had a picture of himself on his business cards!

  17. I'm sure you made him smile. I do hope your walking dead t-shirt wasn't too torn and that you didn't reek of chicken poo too much.

  19. Damnit! I was at that surgery yesterday with my in-laws cat (it's not my usual surgery) and I didn't see him!

  20. Can you not surreptitiously take a photograph of this gods like creature for us all to see?

    I had a terrible crush on my vet in my mid20's and felt like a twittering school girl when I saw him.

    reminds me of the time last year when I was at the Clinic for the usual ct scan, and a young man was checking me out head to toe... made me feeel so good until he asked "Ma'am, can i ask you where you got your shoes? My wife has been looking for a pair like that..."

    LOLOLOLOLLOLOL

  23. I want to see him now to see if he is as cute as you think he is........

    ReplyDelete
  24. He might be handsome but obviously has no tact.
    He could have smiled sweetly and pretended.......
    Fur coat and no knickers springs to mind for reasons that escape me......

    ReplyDelete
  25. Don't worry John, similar things have happened to us all at one time or another. Just remember next time you meet him to play it cool.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I think he quite fancies you really - he was just playing hard to get.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Don't let him fool you! Of course he remembered you. He was just covering his tracks.

  28. It wasn't just the bottle. John Gray could have been any fellow who stopped in. He knew it was you. Mmmmmmmm . . . John and the gob smackingly good looking vet sittin' in a tree . . .

    Is Chris jealous? He should be.

    Love,

  30. Was this really a dream? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Haha! Too funny. But maybe now he'll remember you next time :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Maybe you should wear a tux next time you pop in and sing his name and see if he gets all woozy ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Haha! Larf! I nearly spilled me coffee. Sorry John.

  34. Elation to depression in five seconds.

  35. Know what you mean, John. The only reason I didn't resent atrocious bills for keeping the cats in shape because the vet was delicious. Not that I was after his hind. His looks just sweetening the bitter pill I was trying (unsuccessfully) to administer.

    However, and do bear this in mind next time you go and see him: Vets do have the highest suicide rate among the professions. Journalists coming a close second.

    Hugs and Kisses,
    U

  41. While it would have made you day if he'd played along and pretended to remember you, the next time might have been a let down.
    None the less, I treat everyone I meet like long lost friends.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Oops. You weren't simpering were you?

    ReplyDelete
  43. Are you sure the vet said "Mr Gray!" in a "lusty" manner? Wasn't that just a tiny case of wishful thinking?

    ReplyDelete
  44. Mmm, perhaps he recognized you by the pattern of stains on your shirt, or the odor of your boots? Ah, well, he is young, he'll have to learn a bit what's worth paying attention to.
