Pain Scale - 16 :)

Not verbatim, but close.

Urologist: "So ...Your pain was a 16?"

Me:  "What?  No.?  I had a 5/6.  Did I say SIXTEEN?"

"You said 16."

"Oh. Not intentionally - I know better than to do that because I know medical people don't like it when patients do that."

I could almost feel him grinning over the phone.  :)

Sixteen.  An even number, but an oddly exaggerated number had I really meant to use it.  Everyone knows any dramatic pain scale exaggeration begins with a 50 ...at least..  Besides if I were gonna exaggerate last night ...it was 110.  Just saying.  ;)
