So I was digging around in my archives looking for old pictures (about which more later) when I found this mini-comic from the archives--October 2004, to be precise. I was on a PICU (Pediatric Intensive Care Unit) rotation at the time and I had a Sub-I (basically, a fourth year medical student doing an elective rotation) on the unit with me who was very, very annoying. Also he thought he knew more than me and was constantly and subversively trying to one-up me, which is a sure way for a medical student ingratiate himself to his supervising resident, a person who happens to be GRADING HIS PERFORMANCE. (Med students, take note!) Click the image to see bigger.
And also, this crude schematic of the sleeping situation in the resident call room, elucidating why you should always, always try to get the bottom bunk.
Thanks, way back machine! You have both amused and depressed me!
Speaking of pictures from the vault, I am starting to pull up old pictures for my book website to sort of flesh out and give a little extra color to some of the stories I tell in the book. This is a big project, as I have more than ten years of archives, but at least I got something started. Check back again soon, though, because this is a larger undertaking than I had originally alloted time for (see: the length of Mack's nap, plus or minus one episode of "Dino Dan"), and I'm just going to have to chip away at for a while.
