I’ve been suffering from some serious writer’s block lately when it comes to the blog. There are now 18 partial posts sitting in my drafts folder but I haven’t been able to get it together enough to finish one and get it published. Nevertheless, I still wanted to join up with Medical Mondays today so I’m just going to tell you about real life happening right now.
At this very moment, we are watching the March Madness Championship game for the first time in my memory. See, this is our first year living in “Big Blue Country”. Our town is about 2 hours from the University of Kentucky but that doesn’t matter. You could ask anyone here and they will let you know. The people here bleed blue and white. UPIKE is the university in our town, but UK is the town’s team.
The med school Relay for Life team is showing the game on the big screens in the lecture hall as a fundraiser, so we’re able to watch it. We don’t pay for cable so we probably wouldn’t have watched it otherwise. In true med school fashion, half of the students have their iPads out and are attempting to study and watch at the same time.
Our team is really William and Mary but making it to the NCAA tournament isn’t quite our thing so I guess I’m cheering for Big Blue, but I have to admit it feels weird. I mean, I don’t have anything against UK, but I bleed green and gold – to the point that my co-workers tease me about it. No shame here.
Andy has been full of good quotes during the game tonight, so I thought I’d record a few of them here for your enjoyment.
“If my hair turns white, I think I might grow it out long so I look like a wizard.”
:05 into the game when the score was still 0-0…
“They’re tied! They’re still tied!”
A commercial for Two Broke Girls comes on…
“That’s show’s been on for a while now, you’d think they wouldn’t be broke anymore.”
Looking up a website advertised on a commercial as being a healthy living website and one of its front page articles is, “How to Avoid ***holes At Work”…
“That would make it hard to have a bowl movement. Talk about constipation!”
Happy Medical Mondays! Go Cats?
