Two days ago when we picked Molly up from the vet, the tech indicated he had to go give her an injection before releasing her. This conversation resulted in the following line, which at the time was only slightly amusing but now makes me smile and laugh out loud:
“I may be 10 minutes, or maybe longer. Molly has been pretty fractious to all the techs, so it may 15 minutes to get the injection in.”
This tech got some HUGE points for using the word fractious correctly, and in a sentence.
Let me tell you… she has been damn fractious with me too when trying to give her her oral medication! Ugh.
