Going to the hospital can be a scary thing.
Imgur user Olivia Wilde of Iowa City, Iowa went to the emergency room over the weekend with a painful back injury. And it was not fun.
But — perhaps with an assist from “tons of painkillers” — she tried to make the visit more enjoyable by playing on her cellphone and creating a fake boyfriend on Snapchat to keep her company.
Her brief escapade, captured in photos posted on her Imgur page, has been viewed more than 200,000 times.

In another photo her stick-man beau is examining her medical chart, seeing the prescriptions she’s been given for her back pain.
But things take a soap opera turn when stick man takes off running from the hospital with her prescription papers in his hands.
“Stop him!!! He used me!” she wrote on the photo.
Next thing you know, Fake Blue-Haired Boyfriend meets his maker. He was hit by a not-so-fake car.
