No Bedside Manners

“Just a flesh wound.” Doc said. “Don’t know what all the commotion was about at this hour. Coulda waited till morning. Bullet didn’t pierce anything important. Went clean through, slick as a whistle. Good thing, though, that you are a little fleshy. It coulda been bad.”

“Good thing I was fleshy.” I wanted to strangle him. “If I weren’t so gosh dang fleshy, I coulda gotten out of his way.”

“I can’t help with the push-away disease.Might lose the fork.” Doc giggled.

I don’t know why this town liked Doc so much. He’s got quite a mouth on him!
