a long way

I approach the young receptionist who works for the neurologist who will operate on my leg and, with any luck, cut away the benign growth that is giving me grief and make things better.

"Could you please put Joanna in brackets after my name?"

"Oh sure Miss, is this a recent permanent change?"

"No but it would be awesome if you could do that" I respond flashing her a sheepish grin.

"Oh certainly" she returns without missing a beat. She is not a day over 25. They all get it now.

I take a seat and wait for the doctor completely comfortable and satisfied.

My we have come a long way.
