I went for my annual physical the other day, which was my first since my
doctor's practice merged into a larger group. When it came time for my flu shot,
I learned that this was not to be administered by the same assistant who had
done it all these years, Maxine of the gentle touch, as she is apparently some
form of med tech, rather than an actual nurse. Well the actual nurse was from
the Nurse Ratched school: I joked she had a tough act to follow, because Maxine

take any comfort, "but the needle might." Three days later, I still feel like I
was shot in the arm with a gun.
