My friend Ann and I were chatting on the train last night and she pulled out a little orange bottle of perscription medication.
"Check this out," she said, "lately I've been feeling really woozy and out of it, so I went to my doctor." She hands me the perscription and I look it over.
"Wait, I say, this medicine is for - VERTIGO?" I say.
"Yeah, isn't that weird? My doctor says I've got an infection in the doohickey in my inner ear."
"You have an Alfred Hitchcock disease! " I say, marveling. "Cool!"
"Yeah, but that's not the best part. Flip the bottle over."
I do as she says and see, in tiny lettering under "possible side effects" three hilarious words:
MAY CAUSE DIZZINESS.
We laughed all the way home.
