A Stern Warning For Hypochondriacs

, , , | Right | March 16, 2010

(I am on a ferry. I see a woman sitting in a chair with her head between her legs looking rather ill.)

Me: “Are you all right? Can I help with anything?”

Passenger: “I think I’m really seasick.”

Me: “Oh, well, uh, are you sure it’s not flu or something you’ve eaten?”

Passenger: “No, I’ve never felt like this before. I know I’m seasick.”

Me: “Oh, okay then. I’ll just go see if I can find the medic.”

(I didn’t have the heart to tell her that we hadn’t even untied yet.)
