I guess they aren't really interested in discussing medical science, then! Being in the health care arena, they should be aware of those studies which have been all over the news. You said nothing wrong!

Were the nurses ladies? Then they were from Venus....

yuk, yuk, yuk....

Sorry, couldn't resist.

But yes - I'm sure what you said came as a complete and total shock. They likely never have heard this.

With the nurses I know, you'd have been better off just sticking to talking about the wine!

True that!

I suppose the point is that the things I find interesting are not universally shared...

I know the feeling. When I chose a mate, second only to physical attraction was the ability to deal with whatever happens to issue from my brain via my mouth...one hopeful admirer actually bought a dictionary, since he had no clue what I was saying at times...

I watched a movie named Margin Call this afternoon while I rowed then ate lunch. I had never heard of it. Demi Moore played a Wall Street risk analyst. She was wearing little makeup, a severe hairstyle, and straight up business clothing. She is nevertheless beautiful. I think she is 52 now, but perhaps 48 when she filmed it. It helps to have good bones.

Also, this is an excellent movie on Amazon Prime list

Too much to leave to our imagination here...we need a photo!

I know, right? So if you can talk him into putting on the outfit, you are welcome to take that photo yourself.
