...cannot be explained by anything but magic. And not in a nice way, as in, "Wow, it sure is magical how awesome our brains are!"
I'm not going to be a neurologist, guys. I think I'll get a Harry Potter-esque wand for my neuro clerkship next year. Here is how this goes down in my head:
Attending: "Sassy, what causes Wallenberg syndrome and what is the clinical presentation?"
Me, waving wand vigorously: "Magic!"
Attending: "Sassy, what does this patient's CT scan suggest?"
Me, brandishing wand at image: "Magic!"
Attending: "Sassy, how in the hell did you get into this school?"
Me, flourishing wand: "Dark magic!"
Resident: "Med student, get me a cup of coffee!"
Me, stirring in creamer and sugar with wand: "MAGIC!"
They will love me. You have to admit the wand would be useful in the last situation.
