I have a friend from undergrad named Dave. He went through UBC Med and is now a doctor, living in Ontario with his lovely wife (also a doctor). This morning, I check my e-mail and there’s a message from Dave.
He’s back in town for a couple of weeks and wants to know if I have time to get together for a drink or something. He also informs me that he’s sending the message from his father’s computer. Dave’s dad is also a doctor. While going through his Dad’s bookmarks on the browser, he finds my blog.
That’s a total surprise. I had no clue Dr. Shu was reading my blog. I’m guessing he must have Googled his name and found a few pages from Dave’s wedding that mentioned him. It’s possible that’s how he stumbled upon my blog. I wonder if he just bookmarked it and never read it again. I hope he reads it on a regular basis. I’m quite fond of my regular visitors.
Now, I’m not saying this because he might read it, but Dr. Shu is one of the coolest parents you’ll ever meet. When we used to have these big parties at his parents’ house, Dr. Shu would have a throng of 20somethings in rapt attention as he was telling a humourous anecdote. I’ve never seen that before in any other parent I know. A cool dude indeed.
Sir, if you’re reading this, thanks for stopping by and visiting.
