Quit Yer Bitching

I knew I liked him right away. Let’s call him Mr. X as he doesn’t know I am writing this story. I was listening from my office as he was being screened for his eye exam. We have a number of tests that are performed before I see the patient, and some of them require... Continue Reading →
