*Heee* I kinda broke Em's new doctor....

So we are in Columbia having the consultation for her proposed orchiectomy, and it gets to the "Any questions?" part.  I've asked about FMLA and recovery time and how long she might be in hospital, and then the one I've been waiting to ask:

"Can I have her balls once they're out?  I want to get them bronzed and mounted on a plaque."

Now I know what "thunderstruck" looks like.  He drops his face into his hands -- both, so a "double facepalm" (do I get extra points for that?) -- and takes a few minutes to recover.  When he does, the answer (which I pretty much expected) was "No.  Just...(really long pause)...no.  Yes, I'm a doctor, but I'm still a guy, and just...(another really long pause)...no."

By this point, Em and  I are giggling our collective tails off, and the RN has this look of "WTF" with the saucer-sized eyes and is dead-silent..

And yes, I was serious.
