Back track. Lately I've been obsessed with finding a cure for my allergies. About three years ago, out of the blue, I started developing a whole slew of allergies: cats, pollen, etc, and each year they get way worse and last year a new allergy appeared: Claritin. Ummm, what does one do when they become allergic to allergy medicine? Well, I did the only thing I knew, I posed the question as my facebook status and got an answer. Honey. All my friends are so sick of me talking about this (and they make up 90% of my readers) so I'll just say that it really does work, and I'm obsessed with it. It is NOT the same though. I could use some long term medication that doesn't require ingesting extra calories or going on vacation with a large glass jar of honey.
So, back to this new assignment. The doctor is an allergist, so naturally my first thought was "ohmigod you totally need to ask her what to do about the Claritin and the constant itchy nose and ohmigod the HONEY!" but then I thought better of it and realized that I should probably prove that I'm not a totally incompetent employee first.
And then I looked for Madonna in the file cabinets. No, literally. The following GChat conversation explains what I've been doing with my time here:
Brianna: omg what if its madonna's allergist
she lives on 81st
WHAT IF YOU SEE MADONNA
start going through files
Brianna: you know im not kidding even a little
im gonna look
i don't think so but i'll look
Brianna: is that her real last name
no ciccone files
but i'll look under ritchie too
Brianna: also check m
me: nada. im sure madonna gets all her allergies taken care of at the kabbalah centre
i have no basis for this except that she lives close
if i was madonna i wouldn't have allergies
just saying, she can get rid of that shit
And now, photographic proof that I am indeed wearing a white lab coat (something that I never thought would happen again after getting a C- in high school Chemistry and opting to not take a science class ever. Ever again.)
Even with the fat face in that photo (I look I'm imitating Marlon Brando): awesomely hot lab coat.
