372. Ella’s medical complaint


Biology was not Ella’s forte. She had been to three different doctors. They were all useless.

Each time the doctor had examined her throat. Each time the doctor had said the same thing: “Really, you shouldn’t be having any problems with this at your age. It’s usually only with children, and then it disappears after about the age of five. I wouldn’t worry about it.”

“But doctor, it hurts,” said Ella.

Eventually, it took a specialist to sort it out. And the specialist was way out of her field. She looked at Ella’s throat.

“No! No!” said Ella.

“I think you mean haemorrhoids, dear,” said the specialist. “Not adenoids.”
