See, the Zadge had to go see her internist yesterday because the prescription for her asthma inhaler had run out and the office makes you come in to see the doc if it has been more than a year since your last visit.
Which was okay with the Zadge because she loves her doc, who is super smart, and funny, and super positive. He was ranked the Top Doc in Denver this year. And he’s younger than the Zadge and happily married with kids, so don’t get any ideas.
Anyhoo, Doc greeted the Zadge warmly and complimented her that she looked “great, really great.” They went over some of her recent blood work and he told the Zadge that she was “super fit and in perfect health.”
Then he asked her if she was dating anyone. The Zadge replied that the only dates she had of late were the kind you buy in the produce section. Doc then asked, “Why? You are so attractive and fun!”
The Zadge replied, “It’s hard out here for a spinster.”
Doc said, “Well, I have someone I’d like to set you up with. A friend of mine who is also a patient.”
Doc whipped out his phone and showed the Zadge a photo. Of a nice-looking, 43-year old man. A Microsoft employee, who is as outdoorsy as the Zadge. And taller than the Amazon Spinster. And who completely remodeled his entire, apparently beautiful, house by himself! The Zadge was hooked.
So Doc Matchmaker is giving Handy Man the Zadge’s contact info and the Zadge may, in fact, have a real live date soon!
Does she have a good doc, or what?
Lady Zadge could not resist, since the book was written by the wife of the show’s writer, and has all sorts of inside scoop, and history about the era, and how the female stars do their hair:
The Zadge is so excited to read her new book that she cancelled her happy hour plans to get home sooner and crack it open.
And, yes, maybe she should be seeing a shrink instead of an internist.
