MI, metastatic turkey and soft fire

i went to buffalo today with three other medical
students (a third year and two visiting fourth years) and the
attending/director of the floor.  we drove three hours there and
three hours back.  and it was fun.

we talked about Bush, environmental issues
(including buying smaller, smarter hybrid cars, organic produce, Whole
Foods), hogs, hurricanes and how they might be a result of our
polluting the environment, the end times, MI (Motivational
Interviewing), revolutions, cultural prejudices, politics, elian
gonzalez, AIDS/HIV testing, Tanzania, France, Cuba, texting while
driving, addictions to texting/cell phones, enabling, fall colors,
changing of seasons, possible sites for residency, hopefulness about
changing people’s prejudices, romantic realism, hypomanic behavior,
juggling a thousand activities and about a thousand other things.

my attending drives a nice gray BMW.  while i was sleeping they
talked about an organic turkey that one of the other med students
bought, basted and baked only to slice it open to find a tumor in the
breast!!!! my gosh!  “that’s outrageous” (as my attending would
say).  imagine!  it was a free range turkey with metastatic
breast cancer probably to the bone!  ewwgh.

i mentioned that the changing of the leaves is like “soft fire” which
the attending thought was amusing.  we also talked about MNTees
(pronounced MINTEES) which was simply too cute for words.  all in
all it was lots of fun.  and it’s now 9:30 and i’m bushwhacked!

People are always blaming their
circumstances for what they are.  I don't believe in
circumstances.  The people who get on in this world are the people
who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can't
find them, they make them.
- George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950)
