Me: "Who is the President?"
Patient: "Oh! I know one... oh my gosh, I can just picture him..."
Me: "What does he look like?"
Patient: "Well, he has this strawberry blond hair and it puffs up over his head. I don't know how it does that! I think his name is... Target?"
Me: "Um, who is the current President?"
Patient: "Oh! Yes, well, that's... hmm..."
Me: "It starts with an O."
Actually, I remember at the start of the election, people were saying that Oprah should run for President. I was discussing this with my husband and telling him how much respect I had for Oprah, because I saw her go on some show where she was like, "What is wrong with people saying I should run for President! I have no experience with government! I'm totally unqualified!"
And she has great insight.
Although actually, if she were running for President against either candidate, she'd probably win in a landslide. She's really likable. Hell, I'd happily vote for her against Trump. She seems like a smart lady (based on not wanting to run) and she's certainly a feminist. She seems very even-tempered and compassionate. And unlike Trump, she built her enormous empire from scratch. Actually, I'm liking this idea more and more.
My patient was right! Oprah for President!
