Where was I

Things have been slipping out of my memory lately and I wondered if it was the COPD. So I went to see the Cypriot GP who’s been treating me for the last eleven years. He is 70, the same age as me, so I started by asking him if he had his flu jab this year. He is a b***er for not having it. Yes he assured me, he had.

We went on to discuss the situation in Cyprus and whether he was going there this year for his usual holiday. Following that he asked how my wife (who has been ill) was and had she returned to work yet. That led to discussing employment or the lack of it in this country. We had a really good fifteen minute natter.

As I was opening the door to leave he said, “What did you actually come to see me about today”. “Dunno” I said, “I’ve forgotten”.
