Because I knew him back when he was a normal person, I try not to treat him any differently.
And I resist the urge to show him the dodgy freckle on my arm. I bet doctors hate it when you do that.
Instead, I ask him normal questions about his new job.
|(He wasn't really wearing a stethoscope)|
|(He wasn't even wearing a doctor's coat)|
|(Ooh. A new system for checklists. I just love making checklists with little boxes..)|
|(..and then ticking them off. And the first item is always "make a list", just so I can check that off straight away.)|
|(I'm going to use them anyway. The first one will be "Use secret doctor check boxes". I'll colour that one in right away.)|
|(If I were a doctor, I'd want everyone to know it)|
|(I'm going to call him "Dr Mike" behind his back anyway. Maybe I'll put that on my check list too. Ha!)|
