Put Down that Butter Knife!

Yeah you - put down the butter knife and step away from the kid. (Members of the wife’s family will know what this means.)

Yes – it’s a home strep test kit. Gone are the days of having your father the physician hold your tongue down with a butter knife to peer down your throat with a flashlight.

I have two responses: 1) yikes! If they also create a home pap test then I'll be out of a job
2) no butter knife? what else are we supposed to use?

I can still feel the serrated edges on my tongue.... and can hardly watch when the kids get throat cultures. Ames - you just WAIT until I-man gets his first one...
