Si difficile

Just in passing:
The nurse who has turned off
The air conditioner
(cold conditioner, my grandson calls it)
So she can hear my pulse
While she takes my blood pressure
(101/68)
Just in passing she says
“Mumble difficile”
“Pardon?” I say
“They’re testing you for
C. difficile” she says.
“Oh,” say I.
O, say I.
