I didn't have to argue) thanks doc: You know, your doing a stellar job! Just look at these numbers, this is so great, you should be so proud of yourself. me: silence. um, thanks.
As I tried to remember if a doctor had ever told me that I did a good job, I felt all of those endorphins rush to my brain and put me in a state of pure bliss. I felt so damn good for days.
