Holiday Parties and Other Sacrificial Rituals

Last weekend was just a string of social gatherings. My work holiday party was at a swanky loft where the gentlemen wore tuxedos. Tuxedos, I say!  We were very slightly underdressed, but as the night wore on, so many people had overdressed themselves with vodka and whisky that it didn’t matter. And it was a good excuse to take some time to actually style my hair and wear sparkly nail polish!

We watched some football with friends at my new favorite bar because they put fresh (like, really fresh) blueberries in my beer!

And we had some friends over for a drink. They brought their dog and Mox was psyched to have a friend over. B accuses me of having friends over for the sole purpose of using my cheeseboard and putting together a spread.

He may be right.

We’ve also been using the heck out of B’s Christmas present from my parents. We’ve knocked back the Keurig Kool-Aid. And there’s no going back.

And there was time for snuggles, obvi.

Last week B shadowed a urology team. He really enjoyed it, so much that he is debating doing a Sub-I in urology this summer. I asked him how it was going one day and he said, “Awesome, I got to remove a guy’s kidney today!”

M: Oh that’s cool. But what does that really mean? Did you remove a section or the whole thing?

B: The whole thing. You just stick your hand in there and pull it right out. Like a Mayan King.


Kinda like this.

This week kicked off the first week of an 8-week neurology sequence. That is followed by 12 weeks of family medicine and 8 weeks of pediatrics and then, THEN, 3rd year is OVER!
