My Favourite Things.

I’m back!

Been away for too long. Pondering all things life, exams and ENT. While I was away, I got to spend time with family, with myself (in a Monastery – that’s another blogpost in itself) and with books. I’ve learnt a great deal, and will share when I’m ready.

For now, I just wanted to tell you that I was bored assisting in surgery the other day, and came up with an ENT song.

Do you remember Julie Andrews in the Sound of Music singing ‘My Favourite Things?’. Well, I started singing my own ‘Favourite Things’ to the tune of that song. Here’s how it went:

Parotidectomy, tonsillectomy
Modified radical cool neck dissection
Laryngo, pharyngo, oesophagoscope
These are a few of my favourite things

Skull base resection and rhinoplasty
Microlaryngoscope and laser resection
Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty
These are a few of my favourite things

Laryngectomy and cricohyopexy
Mandibulectomy and fibular grafting
Don’t forget grommets and one fullhouse FESS
These are a few of my favourite things

When the boss bites
When the nurse whinge
When I’m feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things,
And then I don’t feel so bad.

I wished you could hear me sing this song in person. My wife heard it, and was so astonished and annoyed by it, she didn’t know what to do with me.

    1. Thanks!
      If you’d kindly sing it, record it, and you tube it, I’d happily put it up here so the world can see. We might invite you to do the opening gig at our ENT conferences too.
      Cheerios.

      1. Haha, definitely. Doing the opening gig at an ENT conference has been a lifelong dream of mine. Just as long as no one asks me what any of the 3+ syllable words mean, it’ll be perfect.

      2. This is a smart idea: Giving yourself ONLY 5 meituns to choose them. I did the same thing when choosing the images for , knowing that I would have been much more indecisive if I had taken any longer! Great selection and collection here Rantz, love your work!
