My Magic Wand

Today, one of the nurses gave me a gift.

I DO have a magic wand

I will often tell people that “I wish I had a magic wand, I’d wave it and make you all better…” followed by a more earthly plan of action. This is sometimes amusing to the staff.

Not as amusing as giving an EM doc a magic wand in a busy ED. Much conversation ensued. The funniest had to do with a conversation amongst the techs about where to store it. “With the anoscopes” was the answer, and I hope they were kidding.

Now, if I only had the power to wield it!

Dean Wormer

CNN.com – John Vernon, ‘Animal House’s’ Wormer, dies – Feb 4, 2005

John Vernon, a stage-trained character actor who played cunning villains in film and TV and made his comedy mark as Dean Wormer in “National Lampoon’s Animal House,” has died. He was 72.

There’s (probably) no Double-Secret probation in Heaven. Say hi to Belushi for us.
