This is a Hugh Hughes Roughbook entry that I wrote after a friend told me he was visiting the doctor tomorrow, and I started to think about how doctors work:
I’m finding it hard to breathe
It hurts in my chest and I can’t seem to breathe very deeply
So you’re breathing shallow breaths
Then you don’t need a rubber ring
You’re not in the deep end of the pool
I don’t understand
You are happily playing in the shallow end.
I’m talking about breathing
I’m talking about risk. That’s what I’m talking about. You come to me. I try to help.
Exactly. Are you wearing trunks
You swim in your underpants
No. I swim in trunks
Just not today
I’m not swimming today
Of course not. Not today. But what about tomorrow
I haven’t been swimming for ages
Go for a swim tomorrow. First thing. That’ll make you feel better. Can you send the
next one in please on your way out. Twice daily and don’t exceed the dose
No need. It’s my job. I enjoy it. I bloody love it.
