The first day

The first day of the third year of medical school--Orientation to the Clinical Clerkships. It was painfully boring. Seven hours of speakers, all of them lecturing on professionalism.

Meanwhile, I sat next to a guy who hemmed his pants this morning...with a stapler. I couldn't help but imagine him walking into the clinic later this week to do histories and physicals, his clothes held together with office supplies. And we wonder why they call us medical stupids.

When Lolita and I got home, the first words out of her wife's mouth were, Did you know there was porn on YouTube?
So, apparently she had a good day.

H&P's with stapled pants. There's a novel in that.

Let it be noted that Maria did not come right back...a sure sign she found the porn.

I had to staple a long skirt back together once at work. It got caught on my chair castor and when I stood up riiip!

As if Craigslist didn;t make me feel dirty enough, now I can watch dirty videos two.

You girls seem to have no concept of the bizarre world of men living alone.
Remember; the default setting for the male brain is "duh".
I speak as a man who knows.

I once was so warm at work that I cut my scrubs just below the knees and stapled the hem up.

Am I bad?

It's only like 4 bucks to have pants hemmed. His stapler probably cost more than that...hmm boys.

The first day of anything is always super boring. Not sure why exactly you needed 7 hours of professionalism speeches though...they must have seen the guy with the stapled pants.

porns never done anything for me...

stapling is probably better than my sewing, I always sew it to what ever I'm wearing!

Maria said...

I'm back...but I forgot to check the porn. I got all caught up in going out for ice cream.

Typical pollyanna lesbian behavior that it right up my alley...I veer off to find porn and get sidetracked by ice cream.

School starts in July? No fair. I thought all schools have summer vacation. At least you had your long and envious stay in FL to tide you over.

Can't say I've ever done the stapling hem. Tape, yes. Was it a good distraction?

LOL! I can't believe I just spent 2 hours watching videos of penguins and the weather at the south pole when I could have found something more interesting... RATS!

One of the best shrinks I ever worked with would have done well to staple his pants...they were always dragging on the floor, but he was a great shrink, and the patients loved him, because he didn't look like a doc...

so there's porn on utube? Interesting...

:))

Terroni said...

Well, Judi, apparently I shouldn't knock it until I've tried it...huh.

Carrie said...
