  1. growing up with 2 pharmacists for parents, i completely get everything you say. now mix that with the fact that i’m a doctor. there are patients daily that make my head hurt just from their \logic.\

  2. when your little old ladies with their tissue-written refill requests get admitted to Hospitale Locale, their pills in tissue become “i take a round white pill once a day, and a green one twice but i don’t know what they’re called.”
    and i have a great respect for pharmacists in the hospital and out!
