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.
