PERSON 1: You could certainly drop the appendix.
PERSON 2: Yes, the appendix!
Here’s what I’m wondering. Do you think they were graduate students or writers (or some such) talking about a document? OR, do you think they were surgeons, having a conversation about which organs it’s acceptable to drop on the floor?
I prefer the second option.
Anyway. I don’t have a lot of time today, but I want to recommend two things: the Edward Gorey exhibit at the Boston Athenaeum. And, this blog post by Lesley Kinzel about her thoughts on the TSA, scanning machines, patdowns, and differences between men and women. (Thanks, B!)
