True stories of straight female academics: A scholar of Continental political theory briefly drives around the West with an Italian in his Alfa Romeo then divorces her husband; a novelist debates breast reduction or adoption and chooses the latter; an artist pursues her female collaborator, but the project — and their relationship (though not the artist’s marriage) — falls apart; a poet moves to Europe in pursuit of a married lawyer yet ultimately returns home to her family; a feminist professor dreams up scenarios to run off with two of her male students, but nothing happens; an archivist considers dumping husband and children but decides on Prozac instead.
If my understanding is right, Prozac is a kind of drug to cure depression, so the archivist mentioned above is in depression, and decides to take Prozac to cure it.
But my understanding is obtain via logic deduction(at least to me), not the nature of the sentence, to me, the first impression is she decides to be in depression herself, since she decides to take drug to cure it.
Is my intuition right? Is it better to write "an archivist considers dumping husband and children but ends up taking Prozac instead."?
