Rite of passage (or, Delicious Irony)

Every medical student comes to a point in their career where they must perform their first digital rectal exam (DRE).

Today, during a clinic rotation, was my turn.

In a delicious twist of irony that I think was lost on my preceptor, another physician in the office was having a going-away party which we visited directly after this little procedure.

In other words, within minutes of performing my first DRE I was celebrating my new-found skill with a slice of...

...wait for it...

...chocolate cake.
