WELCOME TO TUEDSAY WRITING at GOBBLERS & MASTICADORES!
For a change I present to you a One Act Play.
What will it take to make you laugh? A small joke? Maybe a tiny tickle?
How about a gun to your head? (Laugh or you’re dead!)
When a serious doctor and a not so serious patient come face to face…
There’s no telling how many laughs you’ll get, that too without a PRESCRIPTION.

DOCTOR: So…Mr. Kumar. What’s bothering you today? KUMAR: Well…I didn’t get proper parking outside. DOCTOR: Pardon? KUMAR: Oh! And my mother-in-law is visiting. DOCTOR: What are you saying? KUMAR: I know! She’s such a proper pain. DOCTOR: Mr. Kumar, I’m talking about your medical problem. KUMAR: Ohhh! So sorry. I got confused. Well…I feel some […]Doctor Why-me and the Patient of Gloom by Terveen Gill — Gobblers & Masticadores

you are proper silly, Terveen 😀
Thanks David. Silliness should always be a part of us as long as it does no harm. To sillier thoughts and words. 🙂
Lol she is sending the doctor insane 😂
Haha! Exactly. The doc may need some rest after this. Thanks Cassa. 🙂
This reminded me of one of the Monty Python sketches which appeared on UK television in the 1970’s. Thanks for a late Tuesday afternoon giggle, Terveen. This has to be seen in some form of stage or screen version.
Haha! Thanks for being generous with your words, Davy. I love humor like that. Simple, decent, and extremely ticklish. It would look good enacted the right way. 🙂
Hilarious writing, Terveen! It can easily be made into an entertaining sketch.👌👍 I once had an encounter with such a patient. He was a middle-aged man in his third post-operative night after open cholecystectomy, and was having trouble with bowel movements. He woke up the entire ward screaming in the middle of the night that all the gas from his intestines was accumulating in his head! Got really upset when we tried to convince him that what he was experiencing sounded a lot like a headache, and insisted on being allowed to consume some powdered tobacco snuff instead! He argued that chewing that would displace the gas from his head. That was a long night!
Haha! Now that seems like a painful night indeed, Aaysid. I suppose the man needed his tobacco fix and was willing to believe that whatever discomfort he had could only be fixed with it. Now that’s a story that won’t be forgotten by you, but it would be hilarious to retell. Frustrating incidents often make the most interesting and hilarious stories. Thanks for sharing this with me. 🙂
Yes, that was probably it! Thank you for providing the opportunity to share. 😁
An awesome elucidation of the who’s on first conversation. Haha! Awesomely funny, and wonderfully written, Terveen. 😊
Haha! Indeed it is. Thank you so much, Jeff. I appreciate it. 🙂
Ha! Indeed. You’re welcome, Terveen. Always. 😊
I love the horseplay in this 🙂 hilarious 🙂
Thank you so much, John. Much appreciated. 🙂
I haven’t laughed so much in weeks: much thanks 🙂
This makes me extra glad, John. May the laughs keep coming. 🙂
Haha, Doc probably needed medical help himself after weathering Mr.Kumar! Had a good laugh, Terveen.😃😃
Haha! That’s so true, Diti. Thank you so much. I appreciate it. 🙂
What a patient. He should go see a psychiatrist in addition to a neurologist. I somehow imagine that this is a person who’s mistreated by his parents and ridiculed by others. So he has grown up to be delusional even. Poor guy.
I believe that we’re often born with certain traits that are independent of any person or situation. And some traits are acquired or molded according to our circumstances. Maybe Kumar is a victim of both. Thanks so much, Haoyan. 🙂
This was excellent. I could just hear the voices and imagine the scene. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
Thank you so much. There’s some dialogue or scene always taking place in my brain. No rest for my mind. haha! I appreciate it. 🙂
So, like me you write in your head?
Yes. It’s exactly like that. You are not alone. 🙂
Haha. I’ve been made. (I only start writing when the story is complete in my head.)
PS. I got in touch with Juan and he seems keen on posting my work. I’ll ask you for advice later…
Any time. Looking forward to your posts. 🙂
Au revoir monsieur.
