I Took 12 Shots...

Yesterday my grandfather had a consult for cataract surgery.  Here's what went on:
Tech 1:
She asked questions to clarify what was on the forms we filled out.
" I took 12 shots in my eyes", my grandfather said.
" You did ?", she asked.
" Yeah."
" I walk a 1/10th of a mile every day."
" That's good." Wish I did that."
We then went in another room:
Tech 2:
" Man I just ate lunch, and right now I feel fat as a cow. You ever feel that way after you eat?", the tech asked.
"Yep.", said my grandfather."
(I didn't say anything, cause, well I didn't really know what to say after that question.)
" Now, I'm going to do a test.  Do my hands smell like onions? I washed 'em but I don't know if that helped."
" I took 12 shots in my eyes."
 " Really?"
" Yeah."
After that we sat in the waiting room again and he started exercising his legs. In the middle of his Rockette's routine he came thisclose to kicking one of the techs.
" OOPS, 'bout gotcha", he said.
" I noticed, that's ok", she said.
" I took 12 shots in my eyes."
And, another room:
" I took 12 shots in my eyes."
" You did?"
" Yeah."
To the eye doctor ( in another room):
" I took 12 shots in my eyes."
" You did?"
" Yeah."
" Did they help?"
" I don't know." Maybe a little."
" Well you're going to have to get one more before your surgery."
" Oh no."
Annnd... another room:
" I took 12 shots in my eyes."
" You have?"
" Yeah."
After that we then got to leave. I think they ran out of rooms.
