Doctors for Parents  
There are pros and cons to having doctors for parents.

The pros. I've never been to a 'doctor' my entire life. No waiting in queues for my turn. I have never been to the hospital for anything major. The only doctor's offices that I've been to are ophthalmologists and dentist. Both people who my parents know. They have some doctor code where they let each other skip their queues. I've never understood the logic though and I've always felt bad for the people who were there before me. They always look like they're in more pain than I am. I might actually have to reconsider the 'pro' in this.

The cons. They don't take sicknesses seriously.

Here's a normal conversation at home.

Me: Ma! I think I've got a fever. Maybe I should skip college today.

Mum(doesn't even look up from whatever it is that she's doing): There's a Paracetemol on table. Help yourself. You should be okay to go to college. If you're too sick there actually might be an antibiotic in the cupboard. Take one everyday.

Me: Gee thanks Ma. Nearly died there. But your motherly doctorly attention has done it once again. -_-

cons:

I never once got stitches in spite of getting hurt bad enough for it.
I've never once fainted.( i have to blame it on them)
never had to stay in bed for an ankle sprain.
never once got a plaster.
they always knew wat to feed me to deprive me of all the enjoyment i could get from my bed.
always had to give all exams in spite of high fever.


pros:

intellectual superiority. hehe. :D
everybody listens to ones parents after they utter Dr. !
so one can take doctor parents anywhere and people would think the whole family is sensible.and start listening.
don't have to waste time on visits to doctors. they're just a phone call away-at ones service!

i haven't once seen what an o.t. looks like from the inside!
i think i'l just ask em to take me for a visit lest i get too curious and plunge into something funny.
