Conversation of the week

May 27th, 2010

Yesterday I had an appointment with the psychiatric nurse who writes my Paxil prescriptions. (I went on Paxil in December when my health problems were properly diagnosed, and I’ll write more about my thoughts on that later. Right now we’re not going for the deep personal/sociological insight, we’re going for cheap laughs, ‘kay?) After our conversation, I noticed, as I always do, the sign pointing to the waiting room, and I stuck my head back in her office:

Me: I love the sign out there that says “Mental Health Reception.” I’d love to attend one someday.

Nurse: I don’t think anyone’s ever noticed that before.

Me: Well, you’ve never had an etiquette columnist as a patient before.

    I’d attend THAT reception. GREAT cheap laugh, you are good!

    If it’s a reception to welcome mental health, I will be there with bells on -I could use some mental health right now!

    If, on the other hand, it’s for the mentally healthy only, it’s gonna be kind of a small reception. Bet they won’t even have to open the second bottle of Coke.

    Now that you’ve done the heavy lifting on this gag, the varieties can be worked out.

    (Miss Conduct stands conspicuously next to sign, looking at her watch and gazing about.)

    Receptionist: May I help you with something, Ma’am?

    Miss Conduct (gestures to sign): I’m just waiting for it to begin.
