An Incident at the Pharmacy

Unfortunately, I had the flu; and I was in need of an antibiotic and some other diverse things.  This was a possible hazard, because the pharmacist sometimes gave into whimsy in order to amuse himself while being consulted or if he got impatient.  There was a long line, and I patiently waited my turn.

It was at first easy; he understood that my problem was a  need for an antibiotic, and he offered me these to be taken as suppositories (this is a common mode of delivering medicine in  France.)

I demurred; and asked for it to be delivered orally.  He got on his tall horse and said, "Does not your lover satisfy you in that fashion?" 

I felt a blush coming on; fair skin hides embarassment very poorly.  And there were many people waiting in line to see him who got this cheap entertainment.

I went, "No Monsieur.  I want the medicine in that way."

So he said, "No!  No!  No!  You are spoiled model.  I have them this way, and only this way."

And he came out in the aisle, bent over, and demonstrated to all the people in line how to properly place a suppository!

I took my medicine and ran out of that place!
