How many times have you called your doctor’s office with a follow up question and wonder why it takes two days for him to get back to you with an answer? Well, this article by Ian Frazier in The New Yorker Magazine may have the answer.
The clue is in a quote from the article.
“So, going over the results and the X-rays—and I kind of hate to tell you this straight out in a message on an answering machine, but—well, Mr. Singer, your condition appears to be very, very serious, possibly terminal. So that’s the bad news. The good news is, you would not believe the day I just had. I am playing the best golf of my life.”
I will let you read the rest on your own……prepare to giggle.
