learn my trade. I was young and naïve and not even considering the social side
of things, I was told, 'Wehay! Can't go wrong. All the guys at medical school are hot. (My husband is nodding furiously!) And the parties... They have orgies all the time at medical school'. The girl was older than me. She had already started at university, so she ought to know what she was talking about, didn't she?
Well if there were any orgies, I wasn't invited to one of them. Maybe I was
too dull? Who knows? The nearest I got to nudity at parties was when the ruggabuggers stripped off after getting incredibly drunk. No different to any other university course there, let me tell you. So if you are 18 and this is one of the things that is helping you to decided which course to go for, think again. Mostly it was exams, revision, lectures, drinking and more exams.
But then I qualified and, I am truly sorry to disappoint, but unlike most of the medical dramas on film and TV, in real life, doctors and nurses aren't always falling into bed with each other. Mostly we're too bloody tired to do so, together anyway. They examine bodies inside and out, all day long (Not particularly beautiful in the cold light of day). Not once did I walk in on a doctor or nurse in an amorous clinch in a store cupboard, or getting hot and heavy on an examination couch.
Now, however, I am a romance author and suddenly I am mistress of
temptation. My words of passion obviously come from my many adventures in real life. My thoughts are wicked and my every waking moment suffused with mental images of hot men. Absolutely. And I have a magic fairy to deal with
the house and kids while I lay back on the sofa, from dawn till dusk, dreaming
dreams and eating chocolate! What do you think?
