It was a mid-summer afternoon and my wife and I were trying to decide where to eat dinner.  After the normal back and forth of ideas we finally decided on a nearby steakhouse.  We arrived at twilight around seven pm as the sun was going down and noticed the dark clouds moving towards the restaurant.

    The Look has killed so many of us. I like this, because you have conveyed a very important point, through a wonderfully humourous story

    Enjoyed the way you laugh at yourself and you obviously have a very strong relationship!!!

    Reminds me of the time we explained to a patient an extremely high risk surgery, and after we asked her if she had any questions, she asked “is that needle, like, going to hurt when you, like, put it in my back…?” :)

    Thanks for letting me camp out in your blog for a little while today. I had a great time and tried to leave my campsite as good as when I arrived. I’ll be back!

    enjoyed the story….I realize now how many good opportunities I’ve passed up to learn over the years for fear of being thought of as silly or too afraid to face the opinions of others.
