In which she is hella good at the canoe


I thought this was amusing so I’m going to share this conversation I had with Andie the other day with you.


Andie, who is in her second year of medical school, is in the process of doing rotations. Her last rotation of the year is Pediatrics. She applied for a one-week program up in the North Carolina Mountains to work at a camp for very sick children.


Andie went to the North Carolina Mountains to camp for years and she loved it. She stated to me the other day that she wished she could go back again as a kid. At any rate, after her application she had an interview and she told me all about it. I could NOT stop laughing because … Andie.


Interviewer: so tell me why you think you’d be good working at this camp?


Andie:             I think that I’m at the same emotional age as the kids at the camp.


Andie:             I would be fine with no electricity.


Andie:             Hygiene isn’t that important to me so going without showers is ok.


Andie:             I was the best person at canoeing in camp when I was there.


Andie:             I don’t mind hot weather


At this point the interviewer was basically speechless and remarked that there were 16 people applying for the one spot.


I was basically like “way to nail the interview Andie” as well as “why do you think you’re so good at canoeing?”


Then she launched into this long story about how they had a contest in camp when she was there and 4 of the 6 events required canoeing and her team entered her in all 4 and she won them all.


She also explained that she was good at kayaking and war canoe and could stand up and paddle across the lake.


She also pointed out that she won the swim races too and what I really learned is that Andie apparently peaked at age 13 (or whatever she was) in camp and it’s all downhill from here.


Meanwhile, I can’t imagine that interview won her the spot since she was supposed to be this MEDICAL STUDENT who would help with the sick kids.


It sure was funny though.

    Maybe she can be our family physician some day ~ with all the issues going on, we’d keep her busier than a 1 armed paper hanger. And we have awesome insurance.
