My darling wife has made plain her concern that I might suffer from sleep apnea. Never mind that she calls herself “worst case scenario woman”…my parents were always thunderous snorers, so I can’t totally dismiss the possibility she has a point.
Yesterday my physician gave me a referral to a pulmonary specialist (that’s “lungs”) whom he regards as a good doctor for “sleep studies”. So I called them up today.
“Hello, doctor’s office?”
“Hi! My physician gave me a referral to your office and I think I need to schedule an appointment.”
“Pulmonary or sleep?”
“It’s a sleep problem.”
For some reason I find that hysterically funny.
