Starving Medical Student Foundation
As a follow up to yesterday’s post, I thought I’d tell you about the Starving Medical Student Foundation. (SMSF) It has been funded exclusively by Dr. Tommy Bibey for many years.
There is only one hitch to it. On Friday, the student must eat at Chang’s Chinese. I’ve had lunch at Chang’s every Friday, at least if in town (which is usually) and if there is not a life threatening emergency (there usually is not) for the last twenty years. It is so predictable that when my daughter used to come home from college if it was after 12:30 she didn’t bother to stop at the office, but went straight to Chang’s.
The SMSF has worked out fine. Most of the students in debt up to their ears, and welcome a free meal almost as much as a hobo. And Dr. B gets to choose the venue- they have no choice in that matter. I get in some great conversations with bright young people I normally would have little access to. I understand they even text message that for an old guy, Bibey is pretty cool, which is all the reward I need.
So, we’re off to Chang’s. Talk to you later.
