Junior Mints

Years ago I had surgery in Florida and my friend Gail came with me when I checked in. As I was chatting with the anesthesiologist, Gail told him not to accidentally kill me since I had been on TV. Frankly, I'm surprised that wasn't a reason to let me die but whatever. Gail told him I had been on Seinfeld and like most people, he immediately rattled off his favorite episodes.

I was recuperating in my room after the surgery and the anesthesiologist paid me a visit.
"Did the doctors talk to you yet?"
"No, why?"
"So no one told you what happened during surgery?"
"Uhhhhh, nooooooo."
"Oh, I see."
"Did something go wrong? Am I okay?"
"Well, I should let the doctors tell you this but.." he leaned in conspiratorially, "someone dropped some Junior Mints in you. Hahahahahahahahahahahaha."

Remember that thing you said when you were a kid? That's so funny I forgot to laugh. I mean seriously, what is wrong with people? Is it too late to sue that guy for pain and suffering? Although in all fairness, I should sue my family first. But he is so second on that list. I bought a box of them today and on what planet are people eating a few Junior Mints and saving the rest for later?

End of chat.


  1. That is hilarious! I am careful, however, when joking with patients at work.
    I don't eat Junior Mints anymore. I had an episode, when I was a kid, when I ate way way too many of them during Bambie.

  2. The reason you are careful with your patients is because you are not a psycho.

    You tease the Junior Mints episode and then don't tell us what happened? I need to know. NOW.

  3. BWAH HA HA HAAAAAAAHHH! I am laughing so hard I'm crying!

    Okay, not really. I worry about the people who thinks that was something funny to do to you.

  4. Oh D2, this is why people love you. And if my readers are not reading Blogography, please start doing so immediately. You'll be as instantly addicted as I was.

    And he's cute! Jane? Are you there?

  5. As I've referenced a few times in my own blog, Seinfeld has become ingrained in our culture and in our language. For you to have had a part in that must be a thrill at times and a burden at others.

  6. I puked all over the place! Happy now?
