A Lick and a Prayer

I don't think I told you about my beautiful blonde Australian friend K and the medical treatment she recently received for a problem on her foot. She's working here in the health care sector as a consultant and therefor knows a lot of doctors and medical personel, so when she cut her foot quite badly she had a doctor check it out. Being somewhere in rural Albania at the time, the doctor quickly pulled out a bottle of Raki (an Albanian version of grappa) and poured it over her wound, an action which I am sure must have been painful. But the biggest surprise came when the doctor took her foot in his hand and proceeded to lick it clean!! I'm not sure if he really thinks that human saliva has antiseptic properties or if he just hated to see the Raki go to waste!

Is it meant to be a joke?

Lily, The story is a true one and K was serious when she told me about it. However, perhaps the doctor was "pulling her leg", even though he was very serious about it.

I think you are withholding information from us. This is only part of the story.

A doctor licking his patient should be going to prison whether it happens in America, Albania, or Pakistan...

Sounds like a hidden camera episode of a fetish website.

ya know... this is one of the all time weird albanian stories...

I think the doctor was hoping she would cut some other body parts next...

I can't read it again. It seems so sick!! Please let us know in the future that had some type of sense. I hope is not just a fetish move.

It's a good thing that the wound wasn't somewhere more dangerously placed. Dangerous wounds and more dangerous doctors, wow that sounds like a porn movie title.

Your friend has been violated or simply put "foot fucked". It is true Albanians put raki on everything but I have never heard of somebody licking your foot.
On a more serious note I am so sorry about your power shortages, it has been the same for last 60 years. I think Alabanians just dont belive in long term debt everything must be paid "Kesh" the next day. Take the company public or in the case of Albanian Private

I’ve heard cats lick their wounds…Maybe, that’s the logic this doc was going for?!?!?!
