If you’re looking here for tonight’s post, you’re in the wrong place. I just spent the last two hours writing this page:
Magic Schoolbus does your nose and throat
Visit it. Proof positive that I can, on occasion, be educational.
Fascinating. And also, eeeuuwww.
I don’t suppose you put people to sleep for that. Or some nice Valium, maybe?
No. Sorry. No drugs. Just have to tough it out.
bleh. But I’ll show it to my 7yo. His current fascination is looking at “The Human Body” volume of his encyclopedia. We’ve covered digestive system (especially the bowels), lungs, pee-nees versus vulvas (only in boring cross sections) and this morning before school, the brain and the fact that the skull is a helmet on the inside. He’ll be “my son, the doctor!***” in no time.
***of course, by that, I mean, “the specialist.”
Cool! Mega cool, in fact. Merci beaucoup for the walkthrough (slide through?).
My favorite story on this, which I forgot to mention in that post: about once or twice a year, one of my female patients will stare wide-eyed at the monitor and say, “Is that . . . ? No, it couldn’t be!”
Yeah, like my little scope could reach that far down . . . not to mention the fact there’s no physical connection between the throat and the vagina. Cracks me up every time.
You are such a funny little hobbit. I love reading you geek about medicine. If you’d been blogging while I was in high school I might have looked on med school with less disdain as a career path. *grin*
You should thank your stars that never happened!
Know how I mentioned that bit about women commenting, “Is that . . . ?” Well, it happened today. The woman snorted, “Hmm. Looks like something else I know. Guess I just have a dirty mind.”
