(scene opens in doctor exam room, Beta and Gamma suffering each other’s existence, Carrot failing sanity checks)
Doctor: (enters) So, tests came back. They both have strep.
Me: (wearily) Not a surprise.
Doctor: I figured they both had it the way their voices were all garbled, but had to do the test to make sure.
Me: Yeah, they do sound like they have golf balls in their mouths.
Beta: Goth balls?
Me: Golf balls. Sounds like you’re talking around solid objects in your throat.
Beta: Oh, okay. That makes more sense. I was trying to figure out what goth balls are.
Me: Eh, it would probably still work as a descriptor. They’re dark and full of pain. (laughs)
Beta: (stares in WTF)
Doctor: (stares in professionalism)
Me: (sighs) Yeah…you don’t get why that’s funny. When can they go back to school?
