Killjoy

One fine Thursday in an ophthalmologist office. A red bloodshot eye. "Did you scratch your eye?"; "High blood pressure?"; "Heavy lifting?"; "Diabetic?"; "High fever?"; "Taking blood thinner medicine?" "Any pain, headache?" "Has it ever happened before?" No to all of the above. After she checked me she said, "Your eye is fine. The bleeding is only on the outer layer of your right eye. It should clear up within two weeks." What a relief, I thought. Then she said, "Go see an internist make sure it's not something serious like stroke." Huh?
