Work is really not that interesting. […] Every nurse here, without exception, is upper middle class. Vacations to Hawai’I are frequent. Large houses with swimming pools. (In California.) Oh, I know! I’ll make a list of all the things they’ve talked about! (Bedivere is rubbing his neck…)

  • Botox
  • Venice, Italy
  • “P shots”—plasma injections into penile tissue
  • Traditional Indian weddings with elephants
  • Swimming with dolphins
  • Cruises
  • Jokes about reporting patients to ICE for deportation
  • Liposuction
  • Bitcoin investments
  • Retreating to their own private log cabin in Colorado in the event of a social revolution
  • Admiration for Jeff Bezos and Steve Jobs

These are the people who surround me for most of the week.
