20 Years

20 years since we took the Final Exam.

20 years since we walked up on stage to receive that much-worked for piece of paper that made it official that we were finally doctors.

20 years since the first time I heard myself being addressed as Dr So-and-So; it felt strange & awkward, a bit like a new pair of shoes that needed some time to be worn in & gotten used to.

20 years since the first call, & feeling petrified/exhausted/exhilarated/hungry/thirsty/sticky (no shower for me that day - no time).

20 years.

I am heading back for our reunion this coming week.

It will be interesting.
