    I got to the Nam in august, 1970. And George was a legend among the mama sans. The urchins in the village all had that George-like nose.

    I didn't feel old until I read this thread, born in 59 and the tail end of the boomers.

    Moved to Montana, gonna be a dental floss tycoon.

    Cheer up. You are many years away from certified geezerdom, and even that's not so bad if you know some guys who are older still.

    Yes. We run the world now. The Donald is but a vestige. . .

    We'll take Steven as our token old and Buffco as our token young.

    I will start RN school in a few months. On my way to my goal of NP of Psychiatry.

    I'll be seeing you Boomers in my office.

    That's cool, congrats.
    I find the assault on free thought disturbing,
    I find the willingness to give it up frightening.

    We help people with psychiatric conditions, like the ghey or being Mormon.

    Shall I schedule you a visit, Eld. Shawn?

    Yes, NP's operate with a lot more autonomy than a PA, for instance. I'm some fields, NP's can open their own practices.

    As an NP of Psychiatry, one would diagnose and treat, as well as counsel. It's the last part that made my mind up about what field. Counselors don't get paid squat but that's what I'd love to do.

    I can hook you guys up with drugs that will make you wake up in the back yard three days later, with no pants on.

    How about a case of the LODGE OCD??

    BTW, this is an appropriate profession for a Jewish guy. Your mother will be proud (although not like if you were a Rabbi)!

    Like my mother loved me too much.

    I've been trying to convince Steven for a long time that I'm Jewish. He keeps finding things that lower my score.

    Your mother's playing Mah-jong and she say's, "My Buffy's a NP of psychiatry."
    Estelle says, "Nu, why not a doctor?"

    But then, I work for an insurance company in Iowa....

    I had a dream the other night that I was either in Chicago or New York with my boss, and men were walking around outside wearing tallit under their suit coats (which is ridiculous since you wear tallit on the outside and only in shul). I realized it was Yom Kippur, and I didn't know since I lived in Iowa. I started screaming at my boss and woke up so pissed off.
