drama moments

I just got home from our OR OUTing at Robinsons where we had a gulped-down lunch of finger-lickin'-good KFC chicken and where someone (who will remain nameless) said, "This mushroom soup tastes different" before he found out that it was the gravy he was scooping up!! Heheheh. Gulped-down because we wanted to catch the first showing of Avatar at 11:25 am. It was quite funny eating with someone counting down the minutes before showtime. We have fifteen minutes. Five minutes now. Three minutes. Can't we ask them to hold the start for a while coz we have to pabalot our left-overs pa? We were all tickled because we are used to countdowns at the OR, for example after giving succinylcholine, we ask the nurses to time us 60-75 seconds before we intubate the patient.

So after all the doggy-bags (and non-doggy-bags) were packed and sealed AND left at the KFC counter for pick up after the movie (where else but in Dumaguete can you do that?), we all trooped to the cinemas where we oohhhd and aahhhd at the niceness of the comfort rooms and the moviehouse. Wow! Even better than some Manila or Cebu theaters!

It was the first time for some of us to be inside the Robinsons cinemas and some of us did not know that there were armrests in between seats. So we were like promdis in the city, getting to know a mod place for the first time.

And when the movie was shown, I almost cried but choked back my tears, twice. First, for the beauty of the movie: the story, the animation, the imagination, the creativity. I think the characters were very engaging and there were moments when I could relate to their emotions. In Visayan, nadala jud ko sa ilang gibati. And second, I think it was just wonderful to be watching an outstanding movie in the company of my beloved coworkers, the awesome Dr. PPA and Dr. JAO, who are not only excellent, excellent practitioners but persons with such big hearts and gracious spirits I feel so privileged to be working with them. It was our treat actually for the OR staff, the feisty and very efficient workers who make our professional lives so much easier.

After the movie we had big cobs of sweet corn (from a stall on the second floor near the food court) to cap what we hope to be the start of more OR OUTings to come.
