Priorities, Priorities

A guy and a girl were sitting behind me on the train, chatting about their dating lives. Naturally, I pretended to be asleep and eavesdropped. It was incredibly entertaining. 

He was talking about how he met this girl, she's great, yadda yadda yadda, but she has a medical problem, specifically debilitating migraines. 

She was talking about how she met this guy, he's great, yadda yadda yadda, but he has a medical problem, specifically epilepsy. 

I can understand how anyone would have to think carefully over pursuing relationships with others with chronic conditions that can flare at the most inconvenient of times (like while operating heavy machinery or holding an infant), but that did not seem to be their main concern. 

The reason why these potential mates may get the ax is because they could really ruin their vacations

You see, one works really hard to plan a vacation, and what if she has to take to her bed the whole time? Real bummer. And he can't go snorkeling, so that would be real drag.

Nothing like a little eavesdropping . . .

Oddly, a drug called topiramate is used both for really bad migraines and prevention of epileptic seizures. Perhaps both patients should be introduced to each other, go to the same doctor to get matching prescriptions and then dump their insensitive dates.

Two birds with one stone!

I do the same thing lol. I have my headphones in and turn down the volume if I know it's a juicy conversation.

Anyway, both people sound pretty shallow. Why aren't they hooking up?

They were just very, very young. They really shouldn't have been dating at all.
