Dr. Orthochick: Neverending

Circulating nurse: Schools are closed again tomorrow [because of snow]
Me: Wow, I really do not miss being in school
Dr. Orthoking Jr: Why's that?
Me: First off, I don't have to do homework.
Dr. Orthoking Jr: Yeah Orthochick, you don't have homework.
Me: Well--
Dr. Orthoking Jr: What did you do last night?
Me: I did some reading on proximal hamstring injuries, then I wrote out my operative plan for this case and the next case, then I reviewed my article for journal club and worked on my presentation for Tuesday on minimally invasive sacroiliac joint fusion.


It never ends around here.


  1. Whoa! An orthopod who does homework! Now I've seen everything *shoots self*

    I kid, I kid! Ah yes, I remember when I left school, and thought that was the end of my suffering. What a poor deluded bastard I was...

  2. Just how I thought that after residency, I would never have to be tired again...

  3. Maybe it just doesn't FEEL like homework.

  4. Thank you Dr. Fizzy for answering the age old question: " What happens to the missing sock from the dryer?"

  5. Atleast school children get stickers for completing the homework.

    As a adult, I do it, but don't get any instant rewards.
