Tantive-iv a.k.a. The Virgin Undergraduate has written an ode to Perth. I couldn’t have worded it better myself. Big ups! 🙂
It includes some wry observations into the antics of the medical and dental students at UWA. Of which I know well because I use to hang out with them at uni and they form a quarter of the clientele at my restaurant. Sometimes the smartest kids are also the most devious. One episode went like this:
Med Student Friend (MSF): What you doing after lunch?
Me: Nothing, I’m done for the day.
MSF: Wanna see some dead bodies?
Me: Cool! But you sure it’s allowed?
MSF: Don’t worry! I’d give you a coat and you put it on. You’d look like one of us.
(in the lab)
MSF: *picks up body parts nonchalantly from the sliced-open cadaver*
MSF: This is the heart, this is the liver, that’s the stomach. And see all that yellowy stuff under his skin? That’s fat.
(Lab supervisor comes up to me)
LS: Are you a medical student?
Me: Erm no. I’m in Engineering.
LS: I’m sorry but you have to leave.
MSF: *whispers* Don’t worry, next time …
Anyways, I HEART PERTH!
