Through Me Chapter 26 has been posted. It's 22 pages and nearly took the life out of me.
I haven't started my readings for Anatomy yet and I'm back to panic mode now and my friend's probably going to reinforce my panic mode with a message "YOU FAIL!" very soon.
Today, a TA went around the table asking each kid what the differences between small and large intestines were. Since we didn't have our lecture on the intestines yet nor did we get up to the readings for that section yet, we all fumbled. The first five kids guessed and threw out random answers for him to correct and by the time he reached me, I had no clue what other differences there were and I couldn't very well repeat the same answers ("Uh, large intestines are larger than small intestines.") so what I finally decided on was: "I don't know."
TA (he always picks on me!) narrowed his eyes at me. "What textbook do you study from?"
Ouch. Everyone at the table was like "OHHHH!" and I could kill them.
I muttered, "Essential Clinical - ah, what the heck, I didn't read the sections for intestines yet."
But TA was still having fun and didn't wait for my answer, continuing, "Because whatever book you used, I want to buy. I've never seen an "I don't know" answer before!"
Again with the "OHHHH!" Seriously, all these kids are going down.
So TA asked me, "So your book says "I don't know"?"
"Yeah." I nodded. When I have no clue what to do, the best bet is to go along with things and try to wing it. "Exactly. It lists "I don't know."
"Then which part of the intestines is "I don't know" then?"
I cleared my throat. "The small intestines."
"The small intestines?"
"That's correct. The small intestines."
"Ah, okay." He smiled and moved on to the next target. "What's another difference?"
The girl next to me grimaced, staring down at the cadaver. "Uh, I read the same book she does."
Everyone cracked up and he went onto the next four people, circling back around the group and everyone continued to stammer, unable to come up with an answer. Who's laughing now, laughers?
We are so sad.
And I really need to go read the book now before TA finds me again and I come up with another genius answer.
