This ultimate harmony, with both sides wiggling like cornered worms, was comparatively easy to achieve in view of our mutual excitement and preoccupation with the panorama of medical practice and daily living unfolding before our eyes. There was acluaUy almost a physical lack of time in which to develop these many minor disagreements into major warfare. A good screwdriver and a lot of work to do combined with the economic struggle for existence, will often delay that first. Inevitable misunderstanding indefinitely, although not, | as John and I soon discovered, for- i ever. j Before our private Battle at :the Bulge look place, though I there were those terrific doctor (marriage hurdles to overcome next. Besides these, the previous ad tments as to toothpaste caps, and misplaced bills became as in sigincant as mosquitoes on th Empire State Building. "Isn't it just too, too IhrillinR t be married to a doctor?" is a com rnon,question, symbolizing _qne "the most universal delusions o this century. . As far as I can see there is nothing thrilling abou being on call 24 hours out of 2 getting up in the middle of th night because someone else isn asleep, answering to the descrip tion of devil or deity, dependin upon the gossiping patient's poin I of view, and the current state o jhis indigestion. , 1 Then there are these choser (people who, while conceding th jromanticisro of John's calling, lik ;to say sympathetically: "You miis 'be terribly Jealous to have to ur husband go off alone to see autiful women In bed, even ey are sick." DOCTOR'S wife is often in the same category as a civil'scrv- nt and a political bigwig. She supposed to render prompt and fflcient service to the community y locating, answering, and de- vering professional messages; hile'at the same time she is ex- to smile ingratiatingly at .1 possible voters, chuck babies ppreciativelj under the chins, and jread good will in the immediate irmly Like a visiting brush sales- an. She must also be immune to surprise. After once coming home o find John practising on a piece t raw meat with his short wave let'trocautery, in anticipation ot patient who was due in the ollice o have her moles removed by this "Bosh,". I answered Indignantly. "You-doctors just like to sound important. It's almost; as bad as » secret code. Besides, it confuses patients and frightens them, like Latin writing on a prescription that makes ordinary aspirin read like doomsday." . "Look who's talking,** laughed John. "What about you lawyers? You take 1000 words to say 'Fifty dollars, please,' and twist the English language by some hocus pocus so that it sounds like an exercise in -irregular French verbs. ' At least we doctors put in bona fide substitutes." , • • • TTAVING been uncovered In my glass house by John's denunciation of legal talk, and Knowing full well the improbability of my ever converting the medical profession to good sense, 1 set out to learn their code. In the first excitement at my arogress, John exhibited my repertoire wherever 'we went. Even after. the first flush wore oft, his Pygmalion pleasure in my new accomplishment never failed. At "It looks a lot like rain tonight—I vyonder if your father thinks more of his new car with the automatic drive than he does of that beautiful new dress of yours!" PRISCIIXA'S POP Not Missing Anything BY AL VERMEER loodless weapon, I qualified. But after three months of tact- ul diplomatic maneuvering with neighbors, 1 told John:-"I'll sweep your floors, answer your phone, but 1 give up on being the contact man for your organization. rrom now on, I'm going to smile only when 1 please, and if Mrs. FHzpatrick wants me to admire Her Herman, I'll pistol firstl" use my water his insistence, 1 went to medical conferences. Hospital stafl rooms, and all professional meetings with him. until gradually, as if to compensate for the grueling grind and imprisonment of practical doctoring, a whole new world appeared before my eyes.
