A Kitten in a Boot

I would like for all of you to take a moment and view this video:

My question to you is, 'What is the significance of a Kitten in a boot?' My answer is...

It has absolutely no significance, and all the significance in the world, both, at the same time. In my world, my med school friends and I spend hours a day thinking, discussing, and learning things like the effects of obstructive pulmonary disorders on forced expiratory volume. We debate over health care policy, what presidential candidate will lead this country to a healthier future and what system will be best for patients and healthcare providers. We memorize the leading causes of bacterial meningitis in neonates vs. infants vs. children vs. adults. And where does it leave us...

Needing to take a moment and look at a kitten in a boot, or hear a story from our spouse or family about their day, or blogging about the need to blog...

See? Relatively insignificant things become unbelievably significant to a medical student. It's like we have no middle ground... passion or play, grind or gawk, a dichotomous life!

I like it when the kitten roars. It makes me laugh.
