Pink Elephants

Me: (after taking a 190/114 blood pressure) "Oh, wow. Do you usually run this high?"

Patient: "No, I'm not high. Though this one time, back in 1967, I did some crazy shit. Seriously crazy. I saw pink elephants. You've never seen pink elephants until you've done the shit that I did. Have you ever seen pink elephants?"

Me: "... no. But I said that your blood pressure is high. Do you have a history of high blood pressure?"

Patient: "Oh! Oh. Yes, I do." (laughs nervously)
