    *doctor leaves room* *touches all of the things*

    1. Touched all of the medical supplies in the exam room when you were left alone.

    2. Attempted to diagnose everyone else in the waiting room and sat farthest away from the sick ones.

    3. Lied when the doctor asked about your alcohol and drug use even though they just needed to know for your health.

    4. Waited for your mom to answer the doctor's questions out of habit, even though you were there alone.

    5. Thought about your doctor in THAT way.

    6. Peeked inside that ominous-looking biohazard trashcan.

    7. Snuck a few Band-Aids or pairs of gloves to use later.

    8. Frantically shoved your phone away when the doctor came in the room as if you weren't playing on it right before.

    9. Tried to convince the doctor that you had some insanely rare disease that you read about one time on a message board.

    10. Rewarded yourself with a lollipop even though you're a grown adult.

    11. Taken one of the stickers that were definitely meant for the kids.

    12. Flinched when the doctor first touched you, even if they weren't doing anything that hurt.

    13. Struck a pose in the mirror (and taken a few selfies) while wearing the medical gown.

    16. Expected the worst every single time.

    17. Assumed the doctor was wrong and acted like you knew more about medicine despite having no medical or nursing degree.
