So, I've been intending to blog this for a few weeks. It was at the night-before-my-cousin's-wedding shindig, and my cousin's wedding was on Erev Purim, so this was on the day before.

So, we were at the night-before-my-cousin's-wedding shindig, and one of the people there was my cousin's friend Chad, and we were talking. And he told us something that happened to him at work. He's working as a pharmacy tech. And he was filling a prescription for a woman and answering some of the basic questions about co-pay and stuff, and then she asked a question about drug side effects or interactions or something, and he said, "I'm not the pharmacist -- I'll go get him."

So he does, and the woman asks her question again, and the pharmacist answers, and then the woman says, "So you ARE the pharmacist, aren't you?"

And he says, "No, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night."

(After they all crack up laughing, he does confirm that, yes, he is the pharmacist. For those outside the United States, it's the tagline from a particularly amusing series of advertisements, with the motif that Holiday Inn is so comfortable that you'll sleep well enough to feel more competent than you actually are. . . )
