Iced Coppee

In Korean, they do not have the letter "f," which makes saying "coffee" difficult. How about a fresh cup of iced coppee? Seriously, why does she lick her finger and touch her nose? WHY?

In other news, I went to the doctor. The entire visit, injection, and medication cost was $20--and that was without my insurance. Thanks to Kevin the retard, my card was lost and had to be reordered. Still, without insurance it was TWENTY DOLLARS.

Dear America,
Stop your lawsuits. Stop expecting hours of a doctor's time. It will really help out your wallet.

I went, waited for probably three minutes, had a five minute consultation (in English!!), was shown a picture of my righteously infected tonsils, and received an injection in the butt that I have to repeat until situation normal returns. One of the great things is, my boss was there to take me to the doctor, wait for me, and make sure I was okay. In my first class I thought, "Oh I hate Korea, I want to go home!" But life is good again.

And it will be even better after a nap.

I am so jealous of your medical visit!

I on the other hand just went to see the neurologist for headaches. Appointment was at 2:45, she finally saw me at 3:15 and I was out of there at 3:45 with a prescription I had to get somewhere else and a note saying to wait for my insurance to approve the rest.

I think I need to move to Korea for medical attention. You want company!?!? ;-)

I just cannot believe it was only $20! All of my medical trips for womanly OB things have been well over $50 plus the wait time! I am sooo jealous. I am glad you are feeling better though- take care and drink loads of hot tea!
