When your anatomy professor asks if you’d like to take the lead on the bone saw in cadaver lab, there is only one answer: hell yes.
Today was the first day out of nearly 2 weeks of anatomy lab that I can say I actually enjoyed what we were doing. We just began learning about the ribs and thorax, so naturally this morning’s dissection was to remove the rib cage, exposing the heart and lungs. My usual nausea was replaced by a rare sort of giddy awe at the once life-giving organs exposed in front of us. They were beautiful.On a side note, I also got “pimped” for the first time by one of our more intimidating surgeons/professors in lab today about what happens when the long thoracic nerve is cut or injured, and I got it right! (winged scapula). I was really relieved since he’s a bit crass and scary. I was also very happy with the “not bad, kid” nod I received haha.
Q:How many pet unicorns do you own? How many does cranquis own? How many do you need to be a unicorn master?
7 (I got 3 new ones for graduation)
11 (he’s a real doctor so he’s richer than me)
at least 23
Just lost 2 of ‘em in a poker game with baffledinbrooklyn, so I’m down to only… uh…
Cranquis! We were so close to being masters with our combined unicorn assets!
So now we’re down to 16 and The House has, what, 19?
Haven’t you learned, dear, The House always wins!
But what do they look like and what are their names?!?!
You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future … This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.
