I ended up taking one of my sons to the ER two weeks ago. To make a long story short, the doctor finally came in and was talking with me and I noticed that he kept staring into my eyes-I mean, REALLY staring into my eyes. I'm all for looking at someone when speaking but this was really uncomfortable to me. It kept bugging me until I was out in the parking lot putting my kid in the car-then it hit me. He saw my big huge dilated pupils and was wondering what I was on! I had to suppress the urge to go flying back in to explain that I really am not a junkie-I have N.!
so....
I'm just curious as to whether anyone else has had something like this happen-I'm really curious if anyone has ever had to explain it during a traffic stop!!!

I had to laugh when I read this - my last 3 doctor visits ( neuro,chiro and primary) I noticed this too and when I explained it to my hubby how weird it made me feel his reply was " well it's just because you are attractive" !

Sooooooo I think I'll listen to my hubby unless a traffic stop leads me elsewhere! laugh.gif
