On Saturday, I had a little trip to the hospital. After having my pupils examined repeatedly, then came the doctors and nurses whispering into each others ears: 'He's got long hair...he's probably on drugs...'. This of course was followed by a few repetitions of:

Hospital staff: Taken any drugs today?
Louis: No.
Hospital staff: (taken aback) No? What drugs have you taken recently?
Louis: I took some antihistamine last night?
Hospital staff: What kind?
Louis: Polaramine.
Hospital staff: Oh, thats alright. So, no stimulants? Cocaine, ecstasy, Ice?
Louis: No, just polaramine.
Hospital staff: Okay. (Disbelievingly writes on clipboard.)

You can catch the photographs and anecdotes from the day here.
