True Confessions of a Nerd

As I got into the car this afternoon I reached for the cup of ice water that I'd left in the center console.  When I took a sip this thought actually crossed my mind:  This beverage has not gained enough kinetic energy at the molecular level to make it warm enough to be unpalatable.  I honestly think about heat in terms of molecular excitation.  I'm ridiculous.

On a similar note, a pt. called while I was on call for our practice to let me know she'd driven into a ditch, but she felt fine.  I was polite and all, and I'm glad she's okay, but I was thinking "and you called after-hours to tell me you felt fine because?"   I'm a doctor, not a tow-truck driver!  And I actually said that line aloud to some nurses.  Such a nerd.

Molecular excitation... Is you is or is you ain't a nerd... I feel that the answer must be a resounding 'yep'

On the other hand you are a doctor and not a tow-truck driver!
