SWF Seeks More Friends

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!

That actually sounds like one of the best dates you have been on in a while!!!

Thanks Thom. You wouldn't know about any recent dates though. Suiters only need to impress me...not blogger world. That's too much pressure.

My son's doing the same in his undergraduate studies and has been in the ER a few times shadowing a doctor. Unfortunately, I don't think experimenting or practising on his mother is in the cards.
(I need one of my other sons to become a chef...)

Hey, when you can get free medical advice or treatment, it is a good night! Though the thought of anything fizzing in my ear is a little disconcerting.

I'm with you. I need friends who have more practical skills: like carpentry, or access to large amounts of extremely cheap electronics or ... well, you get the idea.

Of course you know where to go for photography, right? :)

Where are you ever going to find a financially secure world traveler?

Yes, we do get along just fine.

So, did you find someone in massage therapy or culinary school?
