I used to attend a surgery and there was a nearby chemist where I would fill my prescriptions. The staff in there were almost exclusively female. Often when I visited I would comment to the staff that of all present I would be the only one wearing a skirt which would generate a smile. I have now changed surgeries to one nearer by and the staff can be either sex so I can't say that anymore but I still attend surgery and chemist when I can in a skirt.
I believe in offering every assistance short of actual help but then mainly just want to be left to be myself in all my difference and uniqueness.

I had to look it up to be sure, but to British folks, surgery refers to doctors' offices or office hours. In US English, it means cutting one open.

Quite so, I was marvelling at Dennis's constitution; going straight from a surgical operation to a chemist.

Over here doctors practice [0] in a surgery whist surgeons practice [0] in an operating theatre [1]. So yes, I can go from the doctor's surgery to a chemist. Blows raspberry.

[0] Haven't they had enough that they need more?
[1] Without an audience generally.

Whilst the footnote states, "Without an audience generally", I can positively state that I have been in formal "operating theatres" in teaching hospitals that have glass-windowed galleries overlooking the actual works. They're largely obsolete now as so much goes on through the high-power magnification of micro-cameras and imaging devices, but are remarkable places nonetheless. The camera imagery can be re-transmitted anywhere in the world on high-enough speed links so the need to physical theatres has been functionally obsoleted.

Of course a long,long time ago a lot of operations had an audience and in some cases the theatre was surrounded by a gallery glassed off so medical students and other doctors could watch as surgery was in its infancy. I suppose nowadays cameras make such scenarios obsolete. One of my grandsons was born with multiple holes in his heart and had two operations within his first ten days. Some of the holes had to be left until he was older. Finally at ten years of age the remainder were sealed but one of the holes was right at the base of the septum and the outer wall. The surgeons weren't sure even on the day of the operation how they were going to seal that one until they operated. On that day ALL the specialist child heart surgeons were in the theatre to discuss, decide and learn how it was to be done. I believe the operation was recorded.

To be ruthlessly accurate, Dennis, doctors and surgeons in the UK practise [with an s in the verb]. I should know because my father was a surgeon and my daughter is one now ;-) And if anyone wants to see why we speak of operating theatres, check out this famous one in London:

The design is modelled on earlier ones in northern Italy.

My best friend worked at the University Teaching hospital in Augusta Ga. He was in the audio/visual section and regularly was in the operating theater videoing what the surgeon was doing. He was requested above the other camera people because he learned how each surgeon worked and could place the camera as close as possible to get what was needed to use it for training other doctors and nurses. He was as dressed out as everyone else in the room and the cameras was wrapped in special plastic so that he could feel which button were which. He is now retired and some of the doctors would call him at home to come in and record the operation after which they would pay him out of their pocket.

Lets see we have an operating room or a theater but no movies

Then when you need your medicine you either get it made up by a chemist at a pharmacy or a pharmacist at a chemist.

and I guess you could see a pharmacist at a pharmacy etc. etc :?: :?: :?: :?:

This of course after you saw you doctor at his surgery or your surgeon at his doctors office.

This is clear as mud

The only thing I can remember is I had to have my leg checked from a recent surgery. I was standing on a platform in front of my lady surgeon and she smiled and said "this exam is going to be easy lift up your skirt :lol: :lol: :lol:

Not exactly, os1 -- you would see a British surgeon at his/ her consulting rooms.

I was told I have balls for wearing skirts! My reply? "That's because balls this big won't fit in pants!"
