the doctor is in the house
since ben has gotten into his psychology doctorate program, he has been warned that he will start diagnosing everyone he knows. well it's already happening & we are only 5 months in. he diagnosed one of his fellow students with asperger's, diagnosed strangers with depression & bipolar disorder, etc.
so we were watching t.v. where two army veterans were attending a 9/11 tribute at ground zero. one said to the other, "i don't like loud noises & i don't like these crowds, they make me nervous."
ben immediately says, "oh they are showing clear signs of post traumatic stress disorder. they need therapy."
so i say, "dr. strader, you're diagnosing everyone."
to which he replies,
"i just diagnosed you with mental retardation and judgemental disorder."
this is going to be a loooooong 4 years.
