Scalpel's Edge

A surgeon's notes

Same Same

I am almost finished my current stint of working away from home. MissZ, 5 years, was pretty upset one night when I was due to leave for another week away. To make her feel better, I explained that I have an exam coming up, and that if I pass that exam I will be allowed to choose where I work and not have to live out of home.

MissZ thinks.

Z: Mummy, I really, really want you to win that test.

Me: OK. You know, in order to do that, I’m going to have to work really hard this year and go to lots of classes and study in my office, even though I prefer to spend time playing.

Z: Don’t worry, Mummy. I’m going to be grade one this year, and I’ll have swimming lessons and readers. I’ll be really busy, just like you.
