Julia Gulia and I have a mutual friend who happens to be pursuing his undergrad in preparation for medical school. He currently works part time in the emergency room at a local hospital. He has learned quite a bit and is always eager to share that knowledge with others.
During a recent visit, our typical hang out activities turned to Hospital Care 101. Instead of movie talk, web browsing, or playing a game, Julia Gulia and I were treated. This included an explanation of medical tools, my hand being looked at (see #8), a plantar wart examination, and our ears being cleaned. As I laid on the couch, a towel around my neck, hydrogen peroxide fizzing in my ear, and Julia Gulia watching on while an explanation of the process was given, I thought, "I really need more friends."
Yes - more friends. Specifically I'm looking for anyone in culinary or massage therapy school. Oh, and if you happen to be a financially secure, generous world traveler, I'm sure we'll get along just fine!
