Word of the Week: Jede Woche ein neues Rätsel über Bedeutung, Verwendung und Herkunft eines englischen Worts.
Psychiatrist: Tell me, what is your schedule on a typical day?
Patient: Well, the kids start school at 9:00, so I get up at 7:00 and make breakfast, get them dressed… you know the routine. I drive them to school and then I go to work at the call centre. I answer phones until 7 p.m.
Psychiatrist: Do you get any breaks?
Patient: Well, yes, sometimes when I breast feed the baby, I put the phone down.
Psychiatrist: I see.
Patient: After work, I go home, make dinner, check the kids’ homework, tend the apple orchard, feed the water buffalo, that sort of thing. I’m in bed by midnight.
Psychiatrist: I see that you’re a very busy person. When do you have your ‘me time’?
Patient: ‘Me time’?! Doctor, I have no idea what the heck you’re talking about!
‘Me time’ is…
a) time for the patient’s memory exercises.
b) time for her medication.
c) time for herself and her hobbies.
Here is the correct answer.
Jogging in the park, reading a good novel, painting a picture, meditating in the lotus position… If none of these things sounds familiar to you, then you might be due for some ‘me time’ as well… before you end up at the psychiatrist!
