I always wonder how doctors keep it together. I mean, I would imagine that the bulk of the time the things they see they’ve seen a hundred times before. ‘Oh, what is that, a large bunion? Yea, you’ll be fine.’ But doctors are just regular people, too. So, they sometimes will see something and you just know deep down they’re going ‘Oh shit, this is some crazy leaky eye’ or whatever. I feel like at my job as a simple graphic designer, there are no less than like 5 times a week when I find myself saying ‘OMG this thing is cray’, and I only say that over simple file formatting issues. I’d just be the worst doctor. I’m pretty sure I could handle all the medical stuff, the hours, the stress of dealing with death… But I’d just be awful holding my tongue at some of the really crazy gross medical stuff.
My last name is Morrison, which means that when we were going to have a baby, the first name Morris was 100% completely and fully off the table in a way that no other name could possibly be. My roommate in college took a class by a guy named Jake Jacobs, which I always thought was about the craziest name I’d ever heard of. Neither the first name or last name is bad of course, but if your last name is Jacobs, before you even think about names at all, don’t you take Jacob out of the name running? I just can’t really understand the reasoning. Do parents go ‘well, we could spend a lot of time trying to come up with a different first name, but we’re really busy today, and these DVR’ed tv shows ain’t gonna watch themselves’? This will forever be a mystery to me.
