It doesn't hurt to include a little humor from the days during the Vietnam conflict.
I remember when we were stationed at Kaneohe Marine Corp Air Station in 1967-68, we had this Marine who wanted out of the Marine Corp -- and he most definitely didn't want to go to Vietnam.
So anyhow, I figured if I could make his visit uncomfortable enough, we would stop seeing him and his list of symptoms as often -- some of which were female-related, if you catch my drift. (This was no rocket scientist).
I woke up the duty MD and told him what I wanted to do. He said, "But Frank, that will be painful." I smiled and he caught on to me and said, "Don't make it too painful." I told him I would give him 1/2 cc ... in each arm.
