My clinical group asked to see me at one of the breaks. They had a present for me. It was a little ceramic Hello Kitty nurse. They surmised that I like Hello Kitty because I have a couple of them on my desk, I guess. And a sticker on my phone. And they pop up on my lecture slides periodically.
Which was cool, but what was even more cool, is that they all signed it on the back.
And if that weren't cool enough, they also gave me a new lab coat, with my name embroidered on it, and hidden underneath the lapel, an embroidered Hello Kitty! I thought that was really the best thing ever. The opposite lapel has an embroidered gold star, because I often tell students "you get a gold star" when they have a clinical insight.
I was so touched by their gifts. Such a thoughtful group of students! It made me feel good.
