It's been a busy week full of brain frozens and surprise important micro meetings so I feel all over the map.

My new pulmonologist friend invited me to the group Style MD and it is my new addiction. Docs take selfies from Target outfits to Jimmy Choo's. "The criteria is stringent," she assured me, "you cannot get in unless you are an female M.D."

This post took me by surprise this morning.

I think you get the idea. I'd type in funny comments but that would take all night.

Very few things make me cry really hard. I can count on one hand in adulthood. My sister tells me I bawled hysterically on the last day of our yearly family vacations to Navarre Beach, Florida, but I don't remember doing that. I remember losing it for the first time in college when I heard the Bruce Springsteen song "Johnny 99." Surprised the Hell out of my boyfriend Snake, who was driving my Jeep. It's still one of my favorite songs.

I also remember losing it in residency when my brother was really sick. Driving around and crying so hard I really should have pulled over on the side of the road. Crime Lab rotation did me in. I told the guys one day I was leaving early and headed to the River to cry all afternoon. No one wants to hear about that shit, you have to just suck it up and deal with it. I remember my ex stopping me the first week, telling me it was too much. It may be too much, but it's still there.

But since then, nothing more than a moist eye and occasional tear. So imagine my surprise when I read the last chapter of my book club book last week, The One in a Million Boy, and major waterworks. I had to rush over and lock the door of my office it was so ridiculous. Tears flying out of my eyes all over my skirt. When I collected myself, after 20 minutes or so, I texted the one who picked the book. "Have you read it yet?" "Yes." "Did it do that to you?" "No."
