One thing I love about medical speech pathology is the sheer variety of people I get to work with. Recently I've gotten to work with a number of patients with a variety of psych histories. Yesterday was a gem:
Phil: Would you like a snack?
Phil: Yum! But I don't have pancakes. How about applesauce?
Patient: I'm ready for supper!
Phil: It's 10:30 in the morning, but I'll bite. What do you want?
Phil: What about for lunch today?
The humor wasn't even in the words themselves, but the uninhibited enthusiasm with which they were spoken. It's moments like these that really make me love what I do.
