Day 29 (of 31 days of free writing)

My doctor told me that on Thursday she will be dressed as Alice in Wonderland. It’s Halloween and apparently all the doctors will be dressed as a storybook character. It seems a bit bizarre that someone actually assigned the doctors a role for the day. It didn’t sound as if my doctor had any choice. She does already have the long blond hair. “It’s an easy one,” she says, “All I need is a blue dress.” I decided not to mention the white pinafore which I thought might just be essential to complete the outfit. Perhaps she thinks her lab coat will be sufficient. I’m suddenly glad I am there to meet with her on Tuesday and not Thursday. I already feel like I am falling down a rabbit hole of a new medical muddle. I wouldn’t want my doctor to look at my last ultrasound results only to say, “Curiouser, and curiouser.”
