And thank goodness for the Trader Joe’s clerk who put a smile on my face today:
TJ’s clerk: “So, you’re a vet huh…what’s the most intense procedure you’ve ever done?”
I proceed to tell the story about the time I anesthetized a 2000 pound breeding bull my senior year in vet school (<—plenty intense, trust me)
TJ’s Clerk: (mildly impressed) “That’s pretty intense… but maybe next time someone asks you that question you should make up something really cool like, ‘this one time, I placed a prosthetic limb on a chimpanzee’ or ‘there was the time I did a liver transplant on a rabbit’..”
Thanks for the suggestion, TJ’s guy. I’ll think about it.
I think it’s going to be a DVR watching, blog reading, early-to-bed kind of night over here. Hope your Saturday night is going well!
