The Froctor

I saw my new allergist. It’s funny, the minute we saw each other, we both knew immediately that we knew each other. Turns out he’s my old friend from jr high and high school’s dad. Totally thought he was a podiatrist, no kidding. I’ve slept over at this man’s house. I’ve eaten dinner with him, played board games with him, watched movies with him, gotten into trouble with his daughter and scolded by him. SO when he wanted to look up my nose, I felt weird and nakey and vulnerable, because he’s not like my doctor, but more my friend – my FROCTOR, if you will.

But I think because he knows me, is tight with my family (say hi to your dad for me!) I think he’s pretty invested in helping me, and I’m pretty sure he’s not going to fire me, either, because that would be awkward when he runs into my dad. Sweet. Score one for the Briester.

I wish I had more froctors.

I know who he is, they are the sweetest fam-

went to school with his 2nd son and loved the guy. (had a serious man crush on his first son...ahh he was so hot!)

seriously this is fate you got this FROCTOR, he is going to never ever fire you-

he is invested in you and from one family man to the next, he will help you straight from his heart-

yay for sweet fate. you needed a break-

Yea for froctors. At first when I read the title I was sure you were going to say your new doc looked like a frog and was therefore a froctor, but friend doctor works too. I'm happy for you.

Oh, Brie, hi-there-I-love-you-I-miss-you-I-need-Blogxygen!

So, I've been catching up on reading blogs tonight. And... mainly I just want to thank you for sharing all your adventures and trials and joys and annoyances and insights and comedies with us. And I think too much has happened since I last commented for me to say anything relevant about most of it, but as for the froctor... well, I am very satisfied with this word; I think it has a nice balance of usefulness and weird-sounding-ness. And I very much hope that the froctor in question makes you feel much, much better, and quickly.
