a new patient on another team looks at me, looks at my name tag, then looks up at me and says, in a very bad accent,
“anh yeu em.” (i love you, from a boy to a girl)
“um are you trying to speak vietnamese?”
“i think you’re dep” (pretty/beautiful)
later, in the afternoon…
“do you have a boyfriend?”
p.s. i should mention that i’m currently on psych at SCMHTC, an inpatient facility for patients requiring acute psych care, i.e. the acutely crazy people.
