A relatively new administrative staff member wanted to relay a message.
"Mrs. J just called and said her husband had a colonic seizure earlier today. He has a past history of colonic seizures but hadn't had one for awhile. She wanted to know if he needed to be seen."
I hope she didn't see me smile because she did a good job of relaying the message.
I was curious, however, if she changed clonic to colonic or if Mrs. J reported a colonic seizure instead of a clonic seizure.
I didn't ask but may re-visit it in the future when she's more settled into working here and gets more comfortable with my, at times, warped sense of humor.
