I’m waiting for a couple more responses to the “two groups” question for the sake of drawing some parallels maybe… but in the mean time, I’ll share this little story.
Bit of background first: You remember the dreaded medication I was on that made me mildly postal AND increased the hot flashes a hundredfold? Well, George, the doc, wants me to go back on it temporarily, “just to make sure” considering that my biopsy was good and wants to keep it that way. I’ve resolved myself to having to take the damn things (pills) but name-calling them eases my anxiety (a wee bit) about taking them.
Conversation with PD over dinner last evening…
ME: I’ve got to start taking those dumb pills again tonight.
PD (trying real hard to be serious): I thought you took those every day… (smirk, smirk)
ME: You bitch.
