do you remember the book, the red tent? it was about the place during biblical times where the women went during childbirth and during their periods, where only women were allowed.
i have been to the pink tent.
the patients were women, the nurses were women, the techs were women, the doctors were women, except for the anesthesiologist who all of the women obviously thought was clueless (and he was). poor chad at least knew he was an interloper; when he asked a question, everyone stared at him like the chair had spoken and then ignored him.
but i found it comforting. not the ignoring chad part, but the all-down-through-time part. the pink tent part.
