Diagnosis: Neonatal Fox

Right on schedule, we got our visit from Doctor Spector, Ruby’s and Henry’s pediatrician, at 7 AM this morning. I thought I’d be much better prepared for his post pardom comedy hour. His opener was, "I have an official statement: out of the three of you, Tim is the least attractive in the morning." Spector! He went on to thank us for giving birth to the second of five children he expects us to have. There were several more one-liners like that before he finished with his visit, and he complimented us on how beautiful Ruby is. The last thing he did was remind us to call the insurance company and tell them his diagnosis: Neonatal fox.

    Does your pediatrician do standup on the weekends?

    Dr Spector, by the way, actually did standup comedy while he worked himself through medical school in Chicago. Even better, he roomed with John Belushi while there (he\’s shown me a picture of them together). Spector always says, "I prescribed the drugs, John took them."
