Just Call Me Dr. Pink Chick

I gave Heather a goody bag for Halloween. In her goody bag was a plastic pink turtle pencil topper. Since Halloween, the pink turtle with wiggly eyes has graced the top of her pen. Today, I get a call from Heather in which she sadly informs me that the pink turtle lost a wiggly eye. I told her to bring the turtle to my office and I would see what I could do.

When the pink turtle arrived in my office, he did look rather sad with a large hole in his head where a little wiggly eye ball should have been. I tried to glue his eye ball back, but my glue had dried up. Instead, I used tape to give the turtle a little eye patch until his eye can be glued in place.

Below is the e-mail I received from Heather shortly after applying the eye patch: (Last name has been replaced with Pink Chick)

Dear Dr. Pink Chick,

Thanks for treating my traumatic head injury.

Pink Turtle

Below is the e-mail I sent her back: ( I am planning to glue his eye in place tomorrow)

Dear Pink Turtle,

This is just to remind you that you are scheduled for surgery tomorrow afternoon, and you should arrive at the hospital between 2:00 pm and 3:00 pm to begin the check-in process. You should not eat or drink anything after midnight tonight. Please feel free to contact my office if you have any further questions.

Thank you,
Dr. Pink Chick, PTMD (Plastic Turtle Medical Degree)

Can you tell it's a slow day at the office?

Heather kindly sent me pictures of the pink turtle (with eye patch) to share with you. When I received her photos, the files were named "Turtle with a half eye-Turtle power". She is too funny with her Ninja turtle references! I will be sure to keep you up-dated on the turtle's condition. :) Okay, so it's a really, really slow day at the office!
