By day, I'm a medical transcriptionist. That means I sit in one spot, wear headphones, and type what the docs say, with grammar editing and such. Yeah, not much Ecstasy here. Before my first cup of coffee, I whine about the bleakness of my existence to CK for as long as he'll listen. The record is 2.5 minutes, give or take.
BUT, every now and then, the docs will say something just hilarious. It's great material for a would-be writer. I was typing along just now, when he said this:
"Impression: Ice-pick headaches. They are not too bothersome to the patient and the mother agrees with just observing them."
First, if that was me, I'd ask to be put up for adoption.
Second, in my world, bothersome describes waiting in traffic, not feeling my brain is being pierced through with sharp, pointy metal. Just sayin.
But isn't it a great line?
