Awkward consultation today where a middle aged women wanted to have a breast reduction. This is something difficult to negotiate at the best of times, as it is all about finding where that line between health benefits and cosmetic lies, but it was made so much more difficult by the fact that when she wasn't referring to her breasts as 'the twins' she was referring to her 'mammoth mammaries'. Her pointed enunciation of the letter 'm' throughout  these words, and the serious note she was clearly trying to portray by using this clearly medical phrase made it difficult to complete the consultation with a straight face.

In the end we decided that it would be quicker and easier if her boyfriend paid for the surgery
