On Your Pink Card

At the bank today, I was told I could have one of two colours on my new card: black or pink.

Black is fine, I said.

"Heh." The woman at the desk smiled. "You would have been the first guy I have ever known to have a pink card."



Well, what can you say to that? I got the pink card.

A moment later, I said, "Also, can I have Dr. put on that?"

She laughed. "Sure," she said, "soon as you show me some ID that you're a real doctor."

She seemed surprised that I could produce that.

But, still, if you're going to have a pink card, it ought to have the word doctor on it. That way, everyone knows just how serious you and your new pink card are.
