What's Happening Now?

So it's been a while since I've posted. Much has gone on in the world, Dwayne Wade turned out to be the real maverick, the Mets have been making the Wright moves, and there are some Tigers that need to be muzzled by the White Sox before things get out of hand.

I've also finished school, mash'Allah, and am counting down to July 1st when I get to trade in my short white coat for a long one. I imagine it will be a momentous occasion, held the evening before we start, with the red carpet rolled out in front of the entrance to the emergency room. As the lights glare and the cameras flash, I'll walk in and the hallway will be lined with hospital staff and papparazzi. The lights will be dimmed and then the soft, subtle music that is played when the Chicago Bulls enter the United Center will be piped in over the hospital PA system. Someone will say, "And now, ladies and gentlemen, announcing your new house interns!" And with that the audience will break out cheering and clapping. "Coming in at a little under six feet tall, the only brownie that won't melt in your hands, Uuuuuu-mar!" Of course, the crowd goes wild...

If only the long white coat imbued you with new superpowers, x-ray vision would be particularly useful, to match the great responsibility wearing it entails. Like a butterfly fluttering on the winds of change, one cannot help but feel trepidation and exhilaration, along with the great hope that God is guiding you to ever better things...

I don't get why you just don't post a blog entry called, "I am single doctor (mA)." And then in your subject line you can say: "Marry me now, but first get in line."

Wasn't that the point of your schooling?!!

Done and done, man. Done and friggen done.

And another thing...

The only spot light that will shine on you is the one that all doctors shine on themselves.

You see, folks, Umar's joke or rather perception that he'll be greeted in Hollywood fashion is in fact what most MDs/DOs EXPECT to happen.

He's not joking around with you or trying to be clever. He's being SERIOUS!
