Some questions deserve their very own post. They are too big, too broad, too all-important to be grouped with the others. They are significant.
And this question, submitted by funny gal and fellow blogger Kimmie Jones, was just such a question.
Are Simeon’s doctors handsome? Or his male nurses for that matter?
Ummm…. yes Kimmie. Yes they are.
But no. It’s not a fluke. They all look like that. The place is like a breeding ground for celebrity look-alikes and dreamy-eyed Disney princes. It’s completely unnerving. And also, it’s awesome.
Since I have no actual photos of Simeon’s doctors, I’ve used their celebrity doppelgangers to illustrate the situation. Observe:
Nothing softens the blow of learning that your baby needs some weird surgery you’ve never heard of, like hearing those words fall from the lips of a Devon Sawa look-alike. And I mean Devon circa 1995 when he appeared in the movie Casper and completely changed how I felt about boys. And about ghosts, for that matter. (umm… I’m getting tingles just thinking about it).
|“Kat, your son needs surgery. And it’s going to be a weird one…”|
Or how about getting the news that your kid’s brain needs some serious monitoring from a Scrubs-era Zach Braff– complete with big bushy man-eyebrows.
|Yes it is Dr. Braff. Yes it is.|
And don’t get me started on med students. I know they’re basically 14-year-olds with stethoscopes purchased at Halloween City– but they know how to wear a white coat.
So, yes Kimmie. They are handsome. Even the lady ones. And the male nurses too.
It’s tough being a special-needs parent– but somebody’s got to do it
PS: Apparently, I’m not alone in my Devon-Sawa-as-Casper experience. I found this article and cackled with such intensity that I gave myself a belly ache.. This was my exact reaction to the Casper-is-a-real-boy scene at 12-years-old: How Devon Sawa In Casper Caused my Sexual Awakening. Truth.
PPS: Now that I’ve written this I’m supremely embarrassed. But I’m posting it anyways. If you breathe a word of this to Sim’s doctors I will have your head.
((PS: The post above led to my most embarrassing moment of 2013. Read about it HERE, if you like that sorta thing.))
