Sadly, I had to cut this scene from my novel.
Okay,” Natalie said. “This’ll cheer you up, Khosi. So: Man goes to his doctor. He’s feeling sick. He’s got a carrot in his nose and a stalk of celery in his ear.” She straightened her menu on the table, took a sip of water, opened and flattened her napkin on her lap. “So, the guy says: ‘What’s wrong with me, doctor? I don’t feel well.’ And the doctor says: ‘Well, first of all—you’re just not eating right.’”
Old and terrible joke, but I laugh every time.
