I'd Rather Hear "You're good IN the sack," But ...

I’ve collected a number of doctors through the years, most recently a cancer doctor and a urologist, related to the loss of one of my two Lil’ Buddies almost a year ago now.

*removes hat, bows head*

The other day I went to the urologist for a checkup.

“Drop ‘em,” he said, and I did.

As he checked things out, I told him how much I admired his handiwork, how the incision had healed to where you could hardly see it, and everything was fine …

“You have a good sack,” he said.

Now among my other doctors is an audiologist, because I have something like 30 percent hearing in one ear, among other afflictions and maladies, so naturally I thought I heard the urologist incorrectly. I wouldn’t want to miss an important instruction.

I said, “What?”

“You have a good sack,” he said.

This time I was pretty sure I’d heard him correctly, but … “sack”? Is that an actual, you know, medical term? And why would he be telling me such a thing anyway?

I said, “What?”

“Your scrotum, it looks good,” he said, and this time I knew I had, unfortunately, heard him right.

*Awkward silence on my part.*

“The one you have left settled nicely in the middle. You wouldn’t even know you’re missing one.”

Well, gee, thanks, doc, and who, exactly (besides the monumentally awesome Mrs. Tater), should be getting that close a look?

But let me tell you, the more I thought about that, the more I got a strut going on the way home.

“So, what did the doctor say?” Mrs. Tater asked.

I could barely suppresss a smi … Ooops! It popped right onto my face.

“He said I have a nice sack.”

“Oh, really? Drop ‘em.”

*Hijinks ensue*

But enough about me. What’s the nicest thing anyone ever said about YOU?
