- A family with the grandma in full burka, mother in hijab and chador, older sister in just a headscarf, little sister bareheaded and dragging a blonde American Girl doll dressed in only a pink t-shirt.
- A little boy running gleefully down the hallway. When I remarked to his mother that he was looking better than when I had examined him earlier, she told me it was my patient’s twin. They were identical.
- A cross dressing relative who had the entire ED unsure whether to address him or her as a she or a he.
- A consult who wore capri scrubs (which I didn’t know existed) along with combat boots. Perhaps the most interesting sartorial choice I saw all week.
- An X-ray of runner’s arm after she tripped on a root. I didn’t know bones could go in that many directions.
- A beautiful little four-year-old girl whose coat cost more than my entire wardrobe, including the bridesmaid dresses I’ve purchased.
- Another set of twins, girls this time, dressed in identical little shirts, skirts and patterned tights. When I examined them, they were even wearing the same underwear. Past adorable in three-year-olds.
- A mom with 20 month old triplets, about to pop with their little brother. My hat is off to you, Mom.
- Several children who were so cute and so well behaved, I thought about taking them home with me. Their parents probably would have been sad, though, so I treated them, and then sent them home with their Mommies and Daddies. But I *thought* about it.
- Also, I made this soup three times this week, after I got off shift. THREE TIMES.
This is a suprisingly and amazingly simple tortilla soup to make. I haven’t made one before, although I’ve consumed gallons of it, because I assumed it would be impossible to quickly and easily make a tortilla soup I thought was worth of eating. Boy was I wrong. This soup is simple, flavorful, and perfect for a quick meal. We’ve kept the stock in our fridge for the week and we can heat it up as we need a meal.
I’ve rewritten the original recipe to reflect exactly how I’ve made it, but the techniques and ingredients are more or less the same.
