Today, as I got an officemate to try to decipher what a doctor had dictated, it seems the doctor had repeatedly used a word for a bit of ear anatomy when he was talking about an operation on a woman's, um, not-ears. "That's the other end!" the officemate said.
I said what I wanted to say to that doctor: "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."
