My parents' next door neighbor wanted to be a vet, but his parents wouldn't let him. So he became a pediatrician instead.
Yeah, heard that one:-) One of my classmates made the mistake of saying that to a paediatrician without a sense of humour once though (did not go down well, he was made to "explain what he meant"). I had a midwife ask me if I had done vet before med once, I took that as a compliment to the way I had got a baby to sleep (not a criticism of my interactions with the mothers!)
LOL! I like that. As a ranch hand growing up, i delivered my share of mammals, and yet when i did my maternity rotation.... SO NOT MY THING.
Pure comedy - that is an apt label!
funny cuz it's true. and proud of it.
DF--You clearly have a gift that I do not. I cannot put babies to sleep, ever. Partly why I shun the idea of having them. Keet--Didn't you do your L&D at RAH with me? If so, it is understandable that we both hate (hospital) maternity. Maha-Yea, I hadn't thought of it that way before but indeed, quite apt. CALM--I was hoping I wouldn't offend you with the post! heehehe I doubt there is vet/heme/onc though so I think you are stuck with us humans. :)
Yep, nothing like a 350 lbs diabetic woman with ecclampsia giving birth to an 11 lb 4 oz. youngster via emergency C-section, or a 78 lbs woman with a serious crack problem delivering her 3 lbs little one into the loving arms of an overstretched social worker to put you off hospital based maternity forever. Ahhh... the humanity.
heh, nice summary.
