The Nose Job

‘The bone structure of your nose
is completely abnormal, have you
experienced a facial injury?’ the
ENT doctor asked:
‘As a young man I was involved
in countless physical altercations
with guys who seemed to hate
my nose, they’d punch it, kick it,
pulled and twisted it, spat at it
and shouted abuse at it, they
hated my nose’ I replied;
‘I see’ she said concealing a
grin:
‘I don’t get involved in those
scenes nowadays’ I said
reassuringly:
‘That’s good’ she said
unimpressed
‘Chances are you’ve treated
some of my opponents’ I
said smiling: she didn’t
respond as she tapped on a
keyboard:
‘Goodbye Mr Robinson, the results
will be sent to you’ she said without
looking away from the screen.
