East v. West

Reasons to like my doctor:

-His name is Angel

-When he changes out of a lab coat he changes into a leather jacket

-He thinks I’m funny

-He promised to find me “someone nice” to give me the Naproxen ass-injection

-He made me wait 3 hours to see him but then spent 20 minutes listening to me bitch and telling me how to fix my back

-He told me his wife has the same skirt

Things to like about my acupunturist:

-She talks like my friends from high school

-She checks my pulse with a Hello Kitty watch

-She answered my inquiry email within 5 minutes on a Saturday night, because she was futzing around online waiting for her friend to let her know where they were going to party

-She knows Asian Tui Na massage, a true test of just how much of a massage junkie I am, because I’m pretty sure that ‘Tui Na’ means ‘flattened doughboy’.

-She spells her first name like the Beatles’ record.

Next week, I’ll be sure to tell you if there are any things to like about my physical therapist, which I’m positive there will be because he has a totally awesome porn star name.

    My friend works with a man named Pornsak. Now THAT is a good pornstar name.

    Hope you’re feeling better. I love your blog!

  3. “Flattened Doughboy” would also be a good pornstar name.

    i used to like my hairdresser for some of the same reasons. well not the massage or pornstarname reasons but more the leather jacket type reasons.

  5. Srah– No, it’s Revolver.

    Megan– that’s pretty awesome. And by the way, I read the other day that there is a guy whose pornstar name is actually Seymour Butts.

    Jess- I think ‘leavened doughboy’ would probably be better.

    Snowy– My hairdressers are always like that, but it’s rare for my medical practitioners.

  6. what about your Beverly Hills-by-day, East LA-by-night math teachers?

  7. That’s awesome. I forgive my Korean popstar dentist for the pain a visit inevitably involves because he uses cool hair product, wears a leather jacket and we have the same name. But to be honest, I’d probably like him even more if his name was Sgt Pepper.
