It's interesting that in books the villain almost always speaks perfect English. Is it because the person doing the speaking means to give off an aura of superiority and likes to boast his intelligence? (This has nothing to do with Nikki's post nor the comments that ensued, trust me.)

Went to the doctor's yesterday for a regular pregnancy checkup and after making me drink some nasty glucose syrup we listened to the baby's heartbeat, he measured me, and then he told me I have a "slight hernia." He asked if my belly button always stuck out like that while he pushed his finger in. It's always been a partial outtie, I told him. He then asked me if I was getting my tubes tied cause they could repair it at the same time. HA! I told him the same thing I told my husband - that I'm willing to have more but if hubby is done then he needs to do something about it.

Of course, when I finally got to work I looked it up. If I really have one it's an umbilical hernia. They don't get better, only worse, and have to be repaired with surgery. Now I'm paranoid that I'll laugh too hard or sneeze and my intestines will come out. lol. Gross thought, I know, sorry.

Why did your doctor assume that you wanted a tubal ligation?

Brotha Buck said...

hehe, ok, I won't make you laugh.

Yes I'm interested in why he thought you wanted to tie the tubes at the same time you fixed the hernia?

i wondered the same thing as chele and princessdominque - what made the doctor ask you that? maybe i'm just projecting too much onto it. maybe it's standard that they ask that.

and yes, please don't laught too hard ;-) i had a bit of a hernia after getting my gall bladder removed - but i guess mine was the kind that got better on it's own.

yea all the geat villians have british accents and speak impeccible english. I think its just an american thing projecting like it you are too british or speak too well something must be wrong with you.

Because movie goers are too lazy to read the screen. If they had the villain speaking their own language then people would probably tune out and miss important dialogue.

I'm with you. Your hubby can always do the outpatient snip, snip.
