Had a doctor's appointment yesterday, and they referred me for an MRI this morning. MRI's are very relaxing: nice comfy "bed", loud (though muffled by headphones), throbbing, buzzing, they lull me to sleep, especially since you must lay completely still for 25 minutes.
Mistake: asking that the headphones be tuned to 91.1 - the news and info branch of the MPR kingdom. I had to endure 25 minutes of House Speaker Steve Swiggum and attorney Dave Lillehaug debating the recent concealed carry court case. At least I could roll my eyes without violating the "completely still" directive.
