I was extremely excited to be on vacation. And then it suddenly hit me that no one else was going to be on vacation at the same time as me. The amazingness of medical school was we could all go on a trip together. All these new interns I have desperately tried to connect to are still slaving away in the hospital, while I get to roam free. But who wants to roam all by their lonesome? I have recruited my hound on a trip, which he'll have a blast, but he's not much of a conversationalist. But the truth of the matter is my next vacation is in 8 months so I best enjoy this one!!

Listening skills

A conversation between a nurse and a patient in the Emergency Department....

Patient: "Excuse me nurse? Are my testicles black?"

Nurse lifts up the patient's gown and takes a peek, "No they look normal."

Patient: "What are you doing? I asked if my test results were back!"

Gotta love the communication that goes on in the ED....
