The One with the Last Minute Lesson

“It’s your last day, right?” Dr. Family asked as we entered her office to start our lunch break. “I think it’s time to teach you how to balance work with real life. Come on.”

I tossed my stethoscope aside and scurried to catch up with her as she wordlessly exited her office and led me to her car. As she placed the keys into the ignition, the chorus of Nelly’s “Ride Wit Me” blasted through the car, and I stifled a giggle at the thought of my attending jamming out on her way to work.

“Are you up for ice cream for lunch? We can eat it on the beach…”

Ice cream? Beach? Now this is my kind of lesson.

And for thirty lovely, relaxing minutes on the sunny, warm waterfront, we indulged in peanut butter fudge ice cream. 

Lesson learned.


For my new visitors (and old friends!), thanks for stopping by! I’m K, a fourth year medical student in the US who realized I recently had my 22nd and final first day of school EVER! Please take a look around (and maybe even subscribe or follow me on FB/Twitter), or hop on over to visit our lovely hostesses Emma and Jane to peruse some other fantastic medical blogs.
