Dr W is away for 2 weeks which leaves Dr L and me the only full time peeps behind. It also lends itself to a very laid back environment. When I was hired, Dr W worried that Dr L and I were entirely too similar in personality and sense of humor and he would be outnumbered. It is times like these that I realize how right he was.
Yesterday, in the hospital:
Me: why is it that every chart I pick up is falling apart? Why can people not put them back together? Did you know that the human head weighs 8 pounds? (Ok I did not say that but I do have a habit of editoralizing my day as go along but so does Dr L.)
Dr L: Do you realize you that you are a walking commentary?
Me: Uh, Hello Kettle, It is the Pot calling. You're black.
Dr L: Any other comments from the peanut gallery?
Me: Sure. How would you like to spend the rest of your life with my stethescope as part of your cranium?
Dr L: What would my wife say when I got home?
Me: Nice accessory, what did you do to make Amanda that mad?
Insert maniacal laughter from both of us here and strange looks from the nursing staff....
The new doctor started this week. When Dee showed her the office she would be sharing with Dr R, she asked if she could paint it pink. (Dr R would HATE that.) I think I LOVE the new doctor :)
