Lacrimation Day

I was standing in the buffet line of one of the many graduation fetes this weekend, next to a dear physician on my school's faculty. But she was suffering:

Distinguished faculty: My eyes are watering, my nose is running, I feel awful.
Me: Allergies?
Distinguished faculty (chuckling): Yeah, how could you tell?

I smiled back and said, for the first time, "Well... I am a doctor."

Not surprisingly, at the ceremony today, quite a few of us graduates, faculty, and family members got a little misty-eyed. Must be the pollen.
