Teddy visits the Royal Victoria Hospital

Teddy, my roomie, got up in the morning and found some thing amiss….. The bugger had eye irritation...

Still the dude braved the 8 hours of WORK….. At the close of the office he found a temporary solution for his problem... - play table tennis

But the marathon tt session (2.5 hours) didn’t improve the situation....... So he decided to face his fear head on - Visit the Hospital….

The Royal hospital was a little far and we got a taxi….Upon reaching the hospital we were awed….

Hard to believe it is a government hospital... it’s so clean and sophisticated.... more like a 5-Star hotel than a hospital….

A very cute receptionist, with a red top and a matching lipstick, welcomed us...

Teddy (in his Sauvé/Sexy voice): Hi, hmm... am having an eye irritation....you know....!!!!!!

Receptionist: Please give me your name and soon we will call you...

Teddy: hmm... so how much should I pay?

Receptionist: Nothing. Don't worry it’s a government hospital

Teddy (back to his normal voice): wow..... You mean it’s all FREE.... ok ... then I have a sour-throat, a slight head-ache, a sprain on the left leg, and an itching on my ....err that all...

Receptionist (unfazed): well, this is not the first time I saw Indians...

We were called to a separate room and asked to wait…. The doctor was in an emergency and was late…

But have to tell waiting in a Hospital is not that bad….the beautiful nurses were a good distraction....

There is something very attractive about Girls-in-Uniform....and the bugger was winking at every single one....(sorry miss....was not winking.... you see i have an eye problem....)

Finally after an hour and half the doctor came.... guess she didn’t forget us (either that or the fed up Nurses begged the doctor to come)

She checked him and gave him an eye ointment....to be taken 4 times a day until the irritation subdues…..

But still Teddy was troubled

Teddy: Dr, Dr, .....while having these medication... can I have JD,…,,err I mean alcohol..... (Please say yes...please please please)

Dr: (Shocked) Oh you Junkie... go get intoxicated.... it wont cause any problem (to your eyes at least....)

The happiness on Teddy's face was palpable....

So we decided to celebrate the situation (getting free treatment) by heading to Jharna....

Savoured the Tandoori Machli and Chettinad Chicken with a glass of Shiraz and Hennessey …..

Giving toast to the hardworking staff of Royal Victoria Hospital……….
