ME: Did you know today was 9-11?
HIM: Of course, because my brain was not destroyed by drugs and I am aware of the world around me.
ME: Whatever. I’m aware of the world around me.
HIM: Yeah, if it’s about you.
ME: Well 9-11 was a dark day in my life.
HIM: I’m surprised you feel this way.
ME: Are you kidding? It was the day I started my Ph.D.
HIM: Yup a dark day for you, and even darker for neuroscience.
