An awkward pause
Had a doctor recommend a sleep study the other day.
“Don’t worry,” he said. “You can bring whatever you’d like to help you sleep.”
I couldn’t resist the opening. Flashing him a crooked smile, I asked “Can I bring my wife?”
He chuckled. “No. You can’t bring your wife. You can’t bring your girlfriend, either.”
There was a pause while I considered how to answer.
“Um,” I said at last. “I don’t actually have both.”
“Oh. Uh, yeah.” He looked down at his keyboard. “Of course not.”
