The more things change ...

I am quite enjoying my GP placement. Last week when I had an external assessor sit in for half a day and "inconspicuously" watch me consult, he said I was "pretty good for a first-term intern". And, safe in the knowledge that my terms this year are strictly laid out and non-negotiable, my supervisor recently asked if I'd like to stay for the whole year. Very encouraging.

And today I spent the afternoon with a Wiggles bandaid on my finger after cutting my finger opening a tin of Milo at lunch time. Then I had to leave a consult partway through because the patient couldn't take me seriously until I'd rid myself of my hiccups.

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

You cut your finger on a Milo tin? That's like stabbing yourself with a beach ball.

It was on the tinfoil seal, not on the tin itself ... if that makes it any better. Now I'm scared to go to the beach.
