Laughter Is The Best Medicine
Gail and I have just got back from a Christmas party at a very unusual venue. St Mary's Church in the Lace Market no less. It had been organised for the hospital department that Gail works for. Also unusually they didn't serve the usual turkey and trimmings, but a curry, supplied from a city centre curry house; ironically not a stones throw away from where I work. It was nice enough, but alas not very hot by the time I was served, as they didn't keep the pans hot, and a 600 year old church can be a very cold building, even with about 120 people in it.
After the meal had been eaten, there was a few sketches and some live music. These three consultants had got dressed up and were singing a spoof version of 'Away in a Manger'. There was also a filmed insert of some doctors and staff miming to 'Do They Know it's Christmas' in a comic way. For example one doctor was singing with a skeleton. It was amusing to watch, and of course was hilarious to the hospital staff who knew them more than I did.
