The Bob's Sister story was hilarious and interesting. The "what it's like to get a shot at the doctor's" story was kinda dumb. Can you imagine carrying on in this much detail about the banal minutiae of other routine medical visits? "There's this moment... when I place the stethoscope on the patient's chest, it's so... poignant. And then I ask them... to take a deep breath. I can hear the air rushing into their lungs through the stethoscope, and it makes me wonder- what's it all about?" It's just a shot. Dramatizing it seems to feed the anti-science crowd, who crave drama.
