My not so intimate moments with a physio.

After weeks of nagging pain to my lower back, (and not from Kama Sutraic events unfortunately) I finally accepted that I needed to see the fomai. 
Because in NZ, like most places - you need to see the fomai first to get a referral to whatever specialist you need. Unless you're in Samoa and doing the specialist. Anyhow. Digressing.
When we went in yesterday, the lovely doctor asked if it's okay that the really aesthetically pleasing faced gentleman who was entertaining my smalls in the waiting room could be in the room? He is a medical student from UoAM. 
"Sure" (but can you fuck off with the kids so I can undress for him?)...thankfully my thoughts are not audible. Phew. 
Anyhow, as luck (or is it bad luck) would have it, the aesthetically pleasing gentleman was a physio before he became a med student. 
He tells me pretty much everything I know anyway, about posture, shifting positions etc but I totally listen and go uh huh, uh huh, yup, yes, I exercise a lot. No, I don't bend over, I bend my knees. (But for you I can bend over honey pie sugar plum). 
Pugi - if you were there you'd be thinking the same thing. 
He tells me everything right about my back but not what I want to hear...a magic pill that will take away the farken pain. 

So the doc asks about what aggravates it., and I explained that my job requires lots of driving to places, eg tomorrow (today) I will be going to my workplace and will be on the road for 4-5 hours drive, and when I go to places, I have to carry heavy boxes, 13kg per boxes and other stuff. 
She looked at me and said "You're not a courier driver are you?"  Hahah. 
No, but those buggers probably get paid more than me these days though. 
Now, the doc continues writing and aesthetically pleasing physio asks if he can check my back, and can I lift my top up to my bra - (oh boy, this is the point where I remember I'm wearing my super comfy geriatric bra. It is so geriatric that it shouldn't be called a bra but a 'conservative garment that is practical but lacks personality'
Malo Le Eva !
Lava ia ga fagogo.
