Medication + dilation = Half-Day Vacation

I got my eyes checked today after not having seen an optometrist for four or five years. I had the full battery of tests run, including the one where the doc dilates your eyes to stare into your brain. It pretty much forced me to take the afternoon off work as looking at my monitor made my eyes go cross-eyed and my head throb.

On the way home, I spotted a chiropractic shop I had never noticed before, “The Chiropractic Experience.” It made me wonder if any other medical-type professions would ever use a name like that. I can’t imagine booking an appointment at “The Ophthalmologic Experience” to get my eyes checked.

Come, Experience Orthodontistry!

Honey, “The Proctology Experience” called and said they had an opening.

Okay, we’ll quit there.

    Better a chiropractic shop than a mortuary.
