    Evil Doctor Conversations

    Tonight in my usual evening telephone chat with V. I began reading to her from the Phobia List, which I had just discovered online. As with so much medical esoterica, one could probably spend hours just reading through this list. The sheer entertainment value of phobias is incredible.

    "Lachanophobia," I read aloud."Fear of vegetables. That's probaby why I don't like going to nursing homes."

    We both dissolved into laughter.
