Honestly when my ortho is doing whatever to my mouth and I'm laying there with my mouth open, she does start up the oddest conversations with me and her assistant. I just think it's the funniest thing, so thought I'd digress from moaning about surgery dates to sharing some of our conversations... lol
Yesterday as my molds were being prepared she somehow got onto the topic of Scottish accents (was telling the assistant she should visit Edinburgh). She loves them, apparantly. The assistant doesn't, apparantly. So I said I like them, but I like Irish ones more. Oh, she loves them too! And Birmingham accents, and she doesn't even mind a bit of Scouse either. We're situated in Yorkshire, which also has a distinct array of accents. My ortho either wasn't born here anyway, or she's just lost her accent over time, but she was telling us her 2 1/2 year old daughter has already got a Yorkshire accent.
- Ok, so anyone outside of the UK might not really know much about the wide array of accents we have. Old broad Yorkshire accents are very abstract. I think you might need CliffNotes to get through it all, much the same as if you were reading Chaucer lol
Anyway she then mused she loves the term 'innit', and a lot of her Asian patients say 'innit' a lot. Apparantly a very good Asian implantologist who works at the main hospital where the specialist oral surgeons, etc work, always says innit, and all his patients love him. Well, there you go!
I've found out some poor child who used to go to her daughters nursery was called Branston Pickle?!?! She once got a complaint from a patient of hers who was trans-gender because she called them by the wrong pronoun....
Should I really be sharing this? I don't know, but I find it very intriguing and funny! :D
So, there you go. Such insight!!!
Still. Not. Finished.
