The games we play in the consultation

I enjoyed Copperfield's account of the games he plays to keep boredom at bay during a long day in the surgery.

My wife - a GP in the same practice - and I also play games and challenge each other. Best was the first to utter a certain phrase and squeeze it into the consultation.

The best phrase so far was: 'Enough about you, what about me dog?' Impossible, I thought, but 20 minutes later she sent a message to say mission accomplished. She'd actually said: 'Enough about you, what about me dog in the photo, haven't you got one the same?'
