S.P.E.C. Day


Saturday is a very important day for Adam Jennings. 

On Saturday, Adam along with about 11 of his fellow students will have their S.P.E.C. day. 

"What is S.P.E.C.?"  You ask
.  
Sensitive Patient Exam Commitment. 

That's right.  On Saturday, Adam will give his first pelvic exam.  

To real human beings.  Male and female.

I mean, having a pelvic exam is uncomfortable already (with a doctor who has performed thousands of them!).  Can you imagine if you were having one by a medical student giving their first pelvic exam?  

I think Adam might be a little bit nervous.

I am preparing a hardy breakfast for this most important day.  Perhaps some innuendo foods for funsies and to gear up Adam for the mission ahead.  

He's going to be the best darn pelvic examiner this side of the Mississippi.
Weird to say, huh?

uh....I am thinking that perhaps a BIG BREAKFAST is not something one may want just prior to needing to examine ones quazn-i peach, va-j-j, picachou, whatever it is they are calling it these days. Just make sure he has a closepin on his nose....or better yet....wear a welder's mask........

Who the heck volunteers to be the patient on these things anyways???? Some sick twisted mutha, that's who.

Although....this could prepare him for the home birth I think you should have. Who needs conventional medicine??? Just strike a yoga pose on the floor and it let it slide out in the living room. I mean, you do have a doc in da' house.

hmmm I am a chatty little cathy tonight, eh??? I give up my own blog only to run my mouth incesently on others. Did I speel that right???

What kind of doc is Adam looking to specialize in???

okay...so one of the doctors i call on, (cute, cute, oh so cute and sweet--similar to adam), is in a practice w/his father and another female md. once a week, month, or however often, they have a gig at the local jailhouse. when the female inmates know that this young, oh so sweet md is coming they come down w/all sorts of issues that require a SPEC exam. prepare yourself oh so young and cute adam...some of these girls consider the SPEC exam a perk of your job!!!

does he have a nervous tummy? i think i'd need some wine with that big breakfast.

for your information... my first pelvic exam was at the baylor university health center in between pref parties my senior year. it was a hideous experience, but thankfully i made it back in time to sing "are you listening chi o's calling you from a day gone by..."

Yeah, save the big breakfast for AFTER the exam. I am sure he will be great and maybe even have a natural knack for it!

Don't forget to serve Hamster - or is it Gerbil?

The shot of alcohol isn't a bad idea, either.

Can I help? I want to fit him with an earpiece and feed him with all kinds of wonderful input - sports radio, Shakespeare, randomly mixed in with Spank Monkey, Sinatra, and some random stuff like that Geico Mrs. Butterworth's commercial, pig grunts, etc.

Good luck Dr. J. At least it isn't his first day of colonoscopies...

BTW, have we auditioned hospitals yet?

the Jennings secede from the South said...

No, freakface- that's not until years 3 & 4. We're only in year 2.
