Homeopathy conversation

We have started homeopathy for Amélie's rash, which has been deduced to being caused by needless antibiotics at her birth. But this post isn't about my usual ranti-ness against the Vic Hospital ... this is about the conversation I had with Amélie's homeopath.

This happened over skype a while ago.

Dr. O : So ... you didn't go to the hospital to have her?
Me : No.
Dr. O : What made you decide to stay home.
Me : (thinking) I just did.
Dr. O : You don't know why?
Me : I could make something up if you want. I just didn't go. I didn't want to.
Dr. O : (that look doctors give when they hear a response like that) You just didn't want to?
Me : That's right. I didn't want to. I thought about it but ... I couldn't make myself go.
Dr. O : Hm.
Me : (awkward silence) I just didn't go.
Dr. O : And then what happened?
Me : I stayed home.
Dr. O : (laughs) You are very interesting.
Me : (leans forward) You have no idea.
Dr. O : I'm sorry what was that?
Me : You have no idea ...
Dr. O : The picture is cutting in and out ...
Me : I said you have no idea!
Dr. O : I can't ... hear anything, I'll have to turn the video off. Okay now I'm very sorry about this but what was that?
Me : Well ... it's not that funny anymore but I said you have no idea.
Dr. O : About what?

Face palm.

I still like her. She likes me too I think. Not in a creepy sort of way.
