Beats my hot tub articles

Mr. Shakes: "Is there anything new out there, doc? I try to keep up on changes in the field."

Dr. Grumpy: "Oh, what do you read?"

Mr. Shakes: "The obituaries."

This reminds me of Janet Evanovich's Stephenie Plum series. The main character's grandmother loves attending viewings in funeral homes and keeping up on the recently deceased.

Maybe I am just post-exam-brain-blitzed but, wha??? That doesn't even make sense!!!!

Grumpy, M.D. said...

Since when are my patients supposed to make sense?!!

Well, a cemetery is a kind of 'field', isn't it? And doesn't the subject of an obit make an original contribution to that field?

See? One need only think outside the... er... box.

Does this patient have a cousin named Elizabeth?

My dad used to read the obituaries and when I'd ask him, "Why?"

He'd say, "Any day my name's not there, is a good day."

Seriously, have you had your waiting room tested for fumes? Have Mary and Annie set out a complementary basket of lead chips for them to snack on? I think you may have the wackiest panel of patients on the planet.

Word verification: gnayh (the sound Dr. Grumpy makes when trying to hold back the maniacal laughter)

this made me cackle...In every pharmacy I have ever worked at (including my time before ever entering pharmacy school) there is always that one person who regularly reads the obits. Oddly useful.
