Here for Tests
I didn't quite catch the diagnosis, the symptom he hoped to alleviate; indeed I wasn't sure there was a symptom and whether removing my left leg would cure it.
I assumed he meant to replace the leg.
The operation is the 20th, I told Niki J. Hey, I said, today is the 20th!
We were here for tests, I thought. Oh, well, all the staff seems so unconcerned. Probably just a routine procedure. They inspire a lot of confidence, these professionals in white suits all about us here. Best to allow them to do their jobs. Not my place to interfere.
I'm really not worried.
