The Last Day of Clinical Tutorials

Finally. I'm rid of (depressing) hospital visits for the semester. 

We had presentations and patient interviewing sessions as usual. My friend did a presentation on myocardial infarction (aka heart attack). His patient also suffers from respiratory tract infection which produces a greenish mucus. Whatever la it was something along those lines. I must say his presentation was by far the most 'interesting'. Cuz he included pictures like this:

# 1 Man with green mucus

Seriously. When I saw it I couldn't stop laughing. Eh please la you know you want to laugh so come laugh with me. It sent me into fits I looked like I was suffering an epileptic attack. But no one else in the room was laughing... except me wth. And the more I tried to suppress my laughter, the funnier the picture seemed. Ang mohs and I have totally different laughing threshold points (my friend is from Hong Kong by the way). 

I was fitting quite badly actually. I couldn't stop fidgeting in my chair trying to occupy my mind with something else... anything else for that matter. I zipped and unzipped my bag countless times. Placed my hands over my mouth in a vain attempt to smother the laughter which only made it even worse. The sounds came out wrong WTH. So I finally resorted to excessive drinking of water. Whenever I felt like laughing, I drank water. By the end of the tutorial my bladder felt like it was going to burst.

It's probably just me. Or my hormones. I seem to laugh uncontrollably at the silliest, lamest jokes recently like the other day when my lecturer suddenly laughed for no reason.  That sent me into a giggling episode that took 10 minutes before it died down. Period.
