I am well, it seems.

I’m typing at my desk. Little Naseem appears with her doctor set.
I want to do your make-up, she says.
Check-up? I ask.
Yes, check up, she says. She uses her stethoscope on me, its pink heart makes a beep sound. I seem well.
20 minutes later, Naseem is back.
I want to do your pack-up, she says.
Check-up, I say.
She knocks a plastic hammer on my knee.
I am well, it seems.

  2. I am SO making my mom read this blog. I was very fond of my doctors set too. I 'wrote' prescriptions before I knew the alphabet! And made it to med school fifteen-sixteen years later :PThis was adorable!I am SO making my mom read this blog. I was very fond of my doctors set too.
