Signs that a Third Year Med Student lives in the House

1. You find things like this peach in the trash can. Nice stitches!

2. There is a pile of blue scrubs on the floor. When Scott came home and saw us for the first time after our Ohio trip, I went to hug him and he said, "Don't hug me; I'm covered in people's bodily fluids." It was very romantic.

3. There are more textbooks than space on the bookshelf.

4. Scott asked for a scalpel the other day. He meant the tweezers.

5. When I ask what he did in the past 30 hours that I haven't seen him, his stories are much more exciting than mine (and I usually have some good ones!). Last week he held a person's heart, stitched up arms and legs, and did so many appendectomies that he sounds bored by them already.

6. He fell asleep for an hour on the sofa in the church lobby.

7. The other side of the bed is empty by 5 a.m.

8. The fridge looks untouched in the mornings, but ravaged late at night.

9. The pile of New England Journals of Medicine go untouched for weeks at a time.

10. The scriptures and a highlighter sit on the back of the toilet. No time is wasted.

Glad to hear that the Peach is on the mend... Is it a faux pas to send it a fruit basket?
