MedBlogs Grand Rounds 3:28

UroStream: Grand Rounds Vol. 3, No. 28

Grand Rounds Vol. 3, No. 28

I have the honor of hosting Grand Rounds for the second time! I can’t believe it has already been a year since the last time I put all these great medical posts together. Time does indeed fly when you are blogging away.

I thought of many different ways to “spice up” Grand Rounds. After much deliberation, I finally decided to” stick to the basics” and just present “the facts”, as I did many times before as a resident during our weekly nerve-wracking, anxiety-inducing Urology Grand Rounds.

Very nice, and a Lot of posts.

I brought my coffee cup home yesterday

…and gave my wife a fright.

At work, we’re allowed to have a cup if it’s covered, so it took me about a millisecond to bring one to work for the coffee.  I can quit any time.  Really.

I like coffee, truth be told.  Not as much as my family, but there’s a space for all I appreciate in my life.  I digress.


So, after several months weeks days in continuous operation, I decided it was time to bring the caffeine chalice home to meet the dishwasher.  I put it in my lunch box, and brought the lunch box home, as usual.  In the middle of the night, of course.

The next morning I happened to be standing in the kitchen when my wife opened said box, took out the coffee cup, shot me a quick look and asked “Did you quit your job?”.  She wasn’t joking.

So, no, I didn’t quit my job or coffee.  She’s happy about the first, and resigned to the second.
