My cousins loved playing hospital. Which led me to believe they would take up the medical profession when they got older (they did not). I hated playing hospital, not because I was not interested in medicine, but because I always had to be the patient. It was fine at first when they just had the simple doctors bag medical kid, but they got this Doctor Do A Lot set and suddenly I was pinned down for hours with hoses and tubes attached to me. No amount of promised Hi-C and shortbread cookies is enough to make me ever sit through what felt like 4 hours of make-believe surgery.
Damn you Doctor Do A Lot and your compelling ability to add a legitimacy to childhood medical emergency fantasies!!
