Post-call Postings

If I had the time or energy for another web-publishing venture, I think I'd organize a collection of all the post-call ramblings of interns and residents across the web.

I was talking about this recently with a prolific blogger. The moments after a call day represent a great opportunity for writing: the authors are either giddy or grouchy. They've spent the past 30-odd hours on the front lines of the human condition. Their judgement and motor coordination are equivalent to a BAC of 0.05.

It sounds like it'd be intriguing to read. But my own post-call rought drafts never seem as profound or emotionally charged, upon well-rested review. Maybe the readers would have to be post-call, as well.
