this is residency: waffles & rectums

On Y's most recent morning off, he was adamant about making me waffles.

It was a beautiful morning. There was nutella on the table. The waffles were warm.

And then Y opened his mouth.

Tip: don't let residents speak during meals. It never ends well. If you've learned anything from this blog, I hope it's that. (example a, b, , d)

 "Your rectum is amazing."

Imagine me choking on a mouthful of nutella. "What?!"

"I mean, not yours. Just in general. Rectums are amazing."

I did the only thing I know to do in situations like these. I blinked.

"Think about it. A small piece of smooth muscle and nerve endings can distinguish between liquid, gas and solids."


"It can let only gas through when there are solids present. It's so sophisticated."

I googled it, guys. This is the only time, ever, when sophisticated has been used to describe rectum.

And to think it all happened on my kitchen table. Over my waffles.

    1. surely you have similar stories?!

  2. Ah! I love the blog tweaks! Looks so fab, and your about page is perfect and hilarious.

    And can I just say thank goodness in my house we stick to the head and neck region. (Though not allowing residents to speak during meals is indeed an all-around good tip. Let us enjoy our delicious nutella in peace!)

    1. seriously. nutella eating time is sacred.

      and thank you! of course I decide to play with the blog at like 9 pm on a Sunday...I couldn't have done this at 8 am Saturday and had the whole weekend!?

  3. LMAO!!!!!!!!!!
    I freaking love you. And Y. And this blog.

  4. oh my goodness gracious what a conversation topic for the dinner table! ;) haha wow. I'm pretty sure I would have sent Russ outside so I could have tried to erase that from my brain while I tried to eat those waffles...haha

    1. psh, this was just the BREAKFAST table. Who knows where the conversation could go over dinner!

  5. Y can discuss rectums with me over homemade waffles any day. That is, whenever he's ready to meet your creepy blog friend you've only hung out with once.

  6. Oooo what is Speculoos cookie butter? I'm so interested..... Also does being pregnant and visiting you warrant a batch of homemade pop tarts? I know they're difficult but one of my favs.......
