A student talks about anatomy lab
Boobs or butts? This was one of the very first questions my anatomy lab group discussed…in detail. It was the first day of our cadaver dissection; all of us were pretty nervous. One of my lab mates and I were even talking about techniques to avoid passing out, just in case we needed them, which we didn’t because we were awesome. Consequently, we were trying to distract ourselves before we started our first series of incisions. The conversation began when the girls in our lab group were discussing what physical features they liked on a guy (an appropriate discussion in an anatomy suite); muscle, abs, chest, etc. Naturally, this sparked a conversation among us guys as to what constitutes the perfect female physique.
It was an interesting icebreaker. Now that we had our minds focused on anatomy, the first incision was cake. The rest of our work in the anatomy lab was stress-free (at least I think it was; I’m still a little foggy from the formaldehyde).
