A visit to the doctor


Because the pronoun “it” has two antecedents here (acne and forehead), it is a vague pronoun. Potentially, “it” could refer to either acne or forehead. Best to reword the sentence to make it clear:

“I need you to get rid of the acne on my forehead”

But then again, hindsight is always 20/20.

    I could never make a point as well as you do. Far too verbose. So I love reading your posts.

    Too bad he’ll never have foresight again.

  4. Hahaha, one op, all problems solved. I’d say this doctor is a genius.

  5. How your blog isn’t on the National Curriculum, I will never know.

  6. Sorry, I nodded off when you said “count backwards from ten.” 🙂

    Then again, if he thought his forehead was the size of Nebraska, it might be his forehead to which he referred… however, if it was me, I probably would’ve researched my surgeon’s capabilities a wee bit more. So that it didn’t look like someone took an ice cream scooper to my forehead.

    P.S. When I had surgery, I didn’t get the, “count backwards from…,” piece. I think I was gypped. No fair!

    Love the frame where the mask is descending onto the person’s face. Awesome, awesome!

  9. Loved the illustrations on this one, especially panel #5 (and #7, too)!

Say stuff!
