I've seen many different consultants during my time here at RIE, and although I've been told the name of the one I'm supposedly officially under I'm yet to identify him. I think he came to see me while I was in critical care, but as I say, I've seen so many that I'm really not sure any more. There was one consultant of note who came to see me in HDU - a respiratory consultant from this ward. He asked me who my consultant is at home, so I told him Dr H.
'Ah. I know him from our Leeds days.'
'He's got a good pair of legs.'
!!! What can one say? I mean, I don't go looking at my consultant's legs (though maybe I ought to).
'He's, um, very svelte, yes...' I trailed off.
'In defence! I mean he's got a good pair of legs in defence!'
'I mean he's very good at football!'
Notable consultant (also going by the name Dr H, but it's a different H) scurried off looking rather embarrassed. I was left giggling at the predicament he'd put himself in, and the thought of my Dr H having 'a good pair of legs'.
I saw this RIE Dr H on my way into the ward. He saw me. He looked quite embarrassed all over again and busied himself with the hand gel at the door. He seems like a nice guy (I'm yet to check out his legs), and the staff seem to like him, so I've been sure to tell them all about his little faux pas ;oP
