A Fear of Needles

They shuffled me into a small room and took my blood pressure.

It was a little high.

Then she checked my pulse.


The doctor came in.

Checked my ears, glanced at my throat, looked at my pupils.

Said my heart was beating a little fast.

"Do you drink caffeine?"


"Are you nervous?"

"Is the pope Catholic?"


They must revoke your sense of humor in med school.
