Pay Attention!

A story forwarded from a friend…

A lecturer teaching medicine was tutoring a class on observation. As part of of his lesson he took out a jar of yellow-colored liquid. “This”, he explained, “is urine. To be a doctor, you have to be observant to color, smell, sight, and taste.”

Right after saying this, he dipped his finger into the jar and put it into his mouth. As his class watched on in amazement, most, as you might imagine, in disgust. But being the good students that they were, as the jar was passed from one student to another they dipped one finger into the jar and then put it into their mouth.

After the last student was done, the lecturer shook his head: “If any of you had been observant, you would have noticed that I put my second finger into the jar and my third finger into my mouth.”

“The Moral of this tale is that using careful observation of the truth will keep you from many distasteful situations.”

One thing the kids heard a lot of while still living at home was “pay attention”. Maybe I have been on the right track.
