So, I was doing some research, right?  Benchmarking, if you will, and I was talking- unbelievably- meeting with, almost on a peer level- to the head of the psychiatry department at another, similar facility to ours.  And he was talking about support groups, and how theirs were such successes, getting fabulous turnout- because they are not “support groups” per se, but fun: a cooking class for diabetics, por exemplo, and a salsa-dancing class for weight loss.  He said that the only group that had no takers was a support group for women with depression.  And I thought, I’m a woman with depression.  What I said was,

     “That sounds boring!”

He looked at me funny for a second, and then just went on like nothing had happened.

That was pretty cool.
