I had to write an email, mortified, that said, in part, "I don't know how to approach this delicately, so I guess I can't... Will I be able to get that parking or is there somewhere in the backstage lounge area where I can secure and use the pump?"
I call Planned Parenthood and they refer me to the local teaching hospital. A review calls the hospital ‘almost a non-profit’, and I’m sold. I make a call and their financial person calls me right back. I get off the phone feeling like it’s less expensive than I thought – maybe not even expensive after all! This is a phenomenon already known to me as the Barneys Effect.
