|with my new friend P.L.|
I was sitting down doing some work in a quiet area at Grady today and this little girl, who was with her grandma, walked right up to me and touched my stethoscope. "Are you a doctor?" she asked me.
"I sure am," I replied.
"For real? Is it fun?"
"Fun?" I smiled and thought about it. "You know what? It is. It's a whole lot of fun."
"I can be a doctor, too."
"If I can you can. What's your name, sweetie?"
"My name is Pretty."
"Yep. And my middle name is Lady."
"Pretty Lady? Really? Is that your real name?"
She giggled and said, "Naww. But that's what everybody call me!" We both laughed and so did her grandma.
"Okay, little mama. Make sure you tell everybody to call you smart, too, okay?"
You know what Pretty Lady said to that?
"They ALREADY DO."
Happy Tuesday. Again. And no, I don't make this stuff up.
