“Fried brains” or “The Afternoon Outpatient Clinic”

AFTERNOON, SURGICAL OUTPATIENT CLINIC, AFTER  LONG DAY AND PARTICULARLY LONG CONSULT (>1Hr)

Cool Reg: *yawn* Sorry that went on for ages, was there *sigh* anything you didn’t understand?

Me (trying to appear interested): *yawn* um…what is *stifled yawn* Ionised Calcium measuring…and *yawn* stuff?

Cool Reg: Eeeer, *yawn* its like, you know, *yawn* a measure of, like, *sigh* caaaaaaalcium that is in ion form, not…well not NOT an ion. You know?

Me *blank stare* Cool.

Cool Reg (trying to appear in teaching mode): its a bit of a estimisa….estimaa….estimasization? ESTIMATION! Fuck. I can’t even speak.

Me: argghhhh can we just go? Or eat muffins?*

Cool Reg (visibly relieved): ohhhh yes.

 

* this was not as ridiculous a suggestion as it sounds, as the awesome clinic nurse bakes muffins or biscuits for each clinic. So we simply went into the next room, ate muffins aaaaand continued on. The looooong afternoon clinic. Sounding just slightly like zombies.
