an aha moment, or two

no matter how hard i try (okay, maybe not that hard) i can't seem to get in and out of the exam room as quickly as my male counterpart.  then i read a study that showed that men spoke on average 2000 words a day, while women spoke 7000.  aha, i thought, proof that my patients are more verbose!  but then i had to acknowledge that i myself am female... and that was the second aha.


  1. Ya, we can yammer some now, can’t we ?~! Even when I am trying to be short I seem to run on and on and on....

  2. I don't know Beth...I figure you're about a 5700 word a day person.
