Unfortunate Timing

Recommended Posts

My wife returned from her smear test to announce to me that she had a cervical polyp and the nurse said it was the biggest she'd seen in 15 years. The conference call I was in the middle of was a little shaky after that...

Didn't have your line on mute then?

Aren't they mostly benign? Not that it would make the news any less disconcerting.

Benign, I've always thought that's a peculiar use of the word...

I can imagine what the nurse was doing when she told her too.

Skype headphone/microphone set up - fairly discrete and easy to miss (unlike the polyp apparently). No, it sounds fine (the polyp). What's wrong with 'benign'? (it seems quite a suitable word)

That's good to hear.

Benign says to me something favourable and positive, as opposed to something that's simply not malignant. In the case of a wart, say, I'd call it benign if it gifted me with a special power.

Pah, who needs so many words and nuances anyway? Good, Ungood and Doubleplusungood should cover most eventualities
