Apparently I am in a crazy weird mood today, because this post was just gonna be a normal story of Jane going to the doctor, but it turned into something MUCH more than that! Jane will take it from here 🙂
I walked up to the front desk at the doctor’s office to sign in for my annual checkup. The lady appeared to be busy and I don’t think she noticed I was there, so I cleared my throat to get her attention.
“Oh, hello! Do you have an appointment?” The lady asked, looking up from her work.
“Yes, it’s with Dr. Albright for 2 o’clock.” I replied.
“Ah, yes! Jane Potter! Could you just fill out this form for me, please?” She asked as she handed me a form and a pencil. I filled out all my information then took my seat in the waiting area until finally the doctor called my name.
“Jane!” She called, pushing aside the curtain, and I went to her.
“Hey what are you guys doing?” Eli asked.
“Oh, we’re playing doctor.” I answered as I turned to face him.
“Cool! I’ll be the doctor!” He said as he entered the room. Julie glanced at me with that “Oh boy” look and I tried not to smile.
“Have a seat, please!” He said in a British accent and I did as I was told.
“Now, I will listen to your heartbeat.” He said as he held a calculator up to my heart (It’s supposed to be a stethoscope. We didn’t have one, so we had to use what we had on hand 😉 ).
Eli suddenly gasped very dramatically. “OH NO!!! NURSE!! OUR PATIENT IS DYING!!!” Eli shouted with his hands in the air.
“Wait, what?!” Julie shouted back in confusion.
“SEND FOR THE INVISIBLE MONKEYS!!” Eli cried.
“Invisible monkeys?” I asked with a giggle. I didn’t know where this was going!
“So you know, don’t you?!” Eli inquired and at first I just stared at him, but then I flashed him a playful grin.
“Yes! Yes, I am beginning to feel it in my heart!” I said as I lied down dramatically. Eli laughed at my quote. He’s such a LOTR fan, just like me. “There is only one thing that can save me!” I continued.
“What is it?!” Eli asked frantically.
“Waffles…” I whispered. Inside I was trying so hard not to laugh at how ridiculous this was!
“What is going on?” Julie asked in bewilderment. I don’t think she was all that good at playing games with guys yet, otherwise she would know that things get insane when a boy gets involved with your story.
“It’s improv, Jules! Just go along with it and be crazy and random!” I whispered. “Ooooh…” She said.
Julie leaned over the table and pretended to cry. “WE. HAVE. NO MORE WAFFLES!!!” She cried.
“Then there is only one more thing to do!” Eli said as he stood on the examining table.
“WHAT IS IT?! I’ll do ANYTHING!!” Julie cried.
“You must sing about waffles!” Eli said to me. “Do you think it will work?” I asked with worry. “It’s worth a try!” He said with determination. “Alright. Waaaafflessss! I love them buuuuutteryyyy! And with syyyyrrruuuup!” I sang and Julie was busting up!
All of a sudden, Caleb walked in the room! “Hi!” He said with a giggle. My guess is that he was laughing at how silly we all looked and sounded. “OH NO!! HE’S THE ONE THAT STOLE ALL THE WAFFLES!!” Julie cried as she climbed on top of the table to avoid him.
“I cookie!” He said. That’s his way of saying that he wants a cookie.
“Now he wants our cookies!!! STAY AWAY!!” Eli said and we all stood and tried to keep our distance from the little “food monster” as I called him.
So that is what my day consisted of! We ended up having to journey half way across the world to find waffles and when we did, I ate them and was healed. Some more of the kids had started playing with us too and we all sang an ending song at the end to close our game. We were all singing so loud and nothing matched or made sense. It was so awesome! It just goes to show that sometimes things don’t always have to make sense when you play, because you can have a ton of fun just being crazy and random with your friends or siblings 🙂
I hope you enjoyed this random post! Bye for now!
