    My patient called me a dyke?!

    Lobsters were on sale at the grocery store, so I ordered 2 (split). They arrived, 2 (alive) and my response/attempt to cook them was embarrassingly overdramatic.

    An incapacitated man dragged himself onto the subway and collapsed when he was only halfway in. He was mumbling for help. I am embarrassed to say that I froze! I just stood there slack-jawed. An older woman immediately jumped into action and tried to drag his legs in before the doors closed. I finally came to and helped.

    I had a glass bottle thrown at me in Santa Monica by a woman on the street who I simultaneously felt bad for and who terrified me. I considered calling the cops but I felt guilty & I've been conflicted about it all day bc she could have really hurt someone but I don't trust that she would have gotten help & I didn't want to simply punish her. Sad.
