The Blog Rounds Season 2 call for articles: Funny storyline

in Blog Rounds/Social Media by

It’s tempting to start season two of TBR with some “serious” topics (like health care reform or politics) but realizing we all need a breather from our busy work, I though of something “light” and funny.

Not that I’m blind to the flak of our bleeding health care system, but I’ve gone to lengths of babbling and rabble rousing year in and year out I think we need something “refreshingly light” now. So in line with my likeness for Scrubs rather than House MD, I’ve chosen”our funniest medical experience” as our season opener.

Yes, dear TBR contributors. In two hundred or so words, you will write about your funniest medical experience, encounters or debacle. If you have the gall or appetite for nauseating laughter after any grandiose display of your missteps, maybe you can write about your monumental medical debacles that brought down your sanity for laughter. Your story, not what you heard, not what you read, nor someone else’s story, but your funny, real doctor or patient storyline.

Now you do have the license to kill us with laughter..

Of course, giving due respect to our beloved patients and avoiding the multitude medical malpractice that will come your clinic office, leave personal identifying information off your story. Surely you don’t want lawyers and judges laughing on our stories inside a courtroom.

Deadline for submitting your articles will be 6pm this Friday August 21,2009 . For guidelines on submitting  your articles to TBR please visit this site.

  1. Huwat? Deadline na? I didn't even realize there was an ongoing round already hehe :)Sorry Doc, i'm so out of it. Di ko napansin na may TBR na pala ulit.

  2. i knew about this, but i too must admit something. i've been trying to keep myself upbeat these past few months, but….i rememebr an anecdote about liwayway arceo, one of the pillars of philippine literature. in reaction to writers who write only when inspiration comes, she said that a true writer writes regardless of mood, regardless of presence (or absence) of inspiration. something like that.this story was told to me by arceo's son, who, incidentally, is my boyfriend who died last april this year. weird world really. sorry doc rems, next time talaga….

  3. @Gigi, we understand and empathize with you…yup join us anytime you feel like to. Lets help you perk your days even.hehehe
