Guess The Question

And now, in quasi-Jeopardy style, the answers to my most frequently-asked questions outside the hospital, in quasi-conversation style. (God I hate small talk):

  1. I’m an Emergency Medicine resident.
  2. No, I’m 28.
  3. I’m from Kansas.
  4. St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital, two hospitals on the west side. One near Columbus Circle, the other in Harlem, across from Columbia University.
  5. For a few brief minutes, it’s like ER, yeah. But with a lot more runny noses, rashes, and drunk people either passed out or yelling at you. I think Scrubs is more accurate.
  6. Yeah, we see some crazy stuff. Brings out the best and worst in people.
  7. Hmm. Weirdest? I guess recently, I think a co-worker pulled a showerhead out of a butt.
  8. Lady that was hit by a subway car. Really sad.
  9. Doesn’t really feel that admirable. Feels like a job with training. I love it, but I wouldn’t be doing it just because “I get to help people.” Just like you wouldn’t be an X just because you like to Y.
  10. I have no idea why you’re breaking out on the right side of your face recently.
  11. Yeah, doesn’t look too bad. Regular borders, not discolored, small, not growing. But you should see your regular doctor, I’m not a dermatologist.
  12. Uhm, I guess I wish more patients showed more appreciation. And had better manners.
