Live Fish or Dead???

Funny..,I woke up this morning and the first thing that came to my mind was my blog..and then I did a mental recap of my week and I started laughing to myself....*still laughing now sef..

As of this morning I made two perfect decisions

1. I will never ever think of specializing in Oncology
2. I will never buy fish from anyplace they have a fish tank except they give me a valid death certificate for the fish (yes!! na me talk am..)

My reasons;
For the Oncology people that course is too sad...ahhh (kilode!!!), that is my current rotation and people I haven't had fun for a teeny weeny second!
It mostly has to do with telling someone "you are dying soon" or "your tumor is gone for now but may be back anytime from now" ...
or if the person is lucky "your tumor is gone and may never come back" or "your tumor is benign and not malignant"

..and I said to myself capital NO ,I don't want to live my life delivering bad news approximately 50% of the time( thanks Oncology..I'm staying married to my choice surgery!!)

For the fish people I felt like eating fish so bad, I walked into a store that I could see clearly with my two two naked eyes that they had live fish tanks
(like my yoruba people oju mi korokoro) and I bought fish that my tired mind assumed were dead...!! yes ke!! dead..(who the heck walks into a store with a fish tank and assumes the fish is dead? well FYI ..I did!!)

Ok..lemmie go on..
I bounced home happily already imagining the tasty soup I was going to make with my fish.
So immediately i got home I dropped my bag at the door (as usual) and went straight to the kitchen picked out a large plastic bowl and ran water into it (yea I ran water into it...I should have just put the fish in the bowl without water first but no I ran water into the bowl..Swweet Jesus!!) and I turned the fish from the bag into the bowl of water...! Oh no It was chaos!!words can't describe just use your imagination, see fish jumping like dolphins from the bowl it was like I was in a horror movie...(lmao!) I ran from the kitchen called a friend who then called her boyfriend....who eventually took about 20mins to murder the was plain nasty!! blood splatter on my perfect kitchen wall..all the while the killing was going on I was stationed at the door of my apartment...and I was thinking to myself "how the heck did I think I was buying dead fish from a store with a fish tank?"


  1. I actually was thinking of pediatric oncology but i haven't decided. We shall see. I wonder what you were thinking, really. LOL. Dead fish in fish tanks, okay...Dammy.

  2. Lmao!!!! That must have been such a show!

  3. hahahaha, the fish story is too funny.

  4. I hate to deliver bad news too. LOL on the fish experience.I can just see you peeping from the door and wondering why it was taking so long to get the live fish dead. Thanks for the lesson

  5. LOL but you know surgery is not exactly easy too :)
    LOL at the fish episode. Wow horror movie right at your doorstep ;)

  6. I can feel you about oncology. And God knows Madame Sting's paediatric oncology sounds worse! kids!!

    Was it cat fish? Those mamas are hard to kill o. last time my sister bought live cat fish home, and was like Vet doctor come and kill. shuo?! thats against my Vet oath joo. we put the poor thing in a pot, covered it and left it overnight in the freezer qed :(

  7. LMAO....dead fish in a fish tank?!
    Wait, all the while you were carrying it from shop to home, it didnt move at all?! Why dint you even let them cut it up in the shop?...LMAOOO!!!
