Some of the residents covered contrast injections at a local free-standing imaging center. They were trying to convince me to help cover, too. I was uninterested in working any more than I already was. A few of them were trying to entice me to work by pointing out how I'd be able to go shopping for clothes and shoes with the extra money. Mike said, "That's not going to work for her. Amanda, think about all the books and music you buy with the extra money." He was right, because he listened to people and knew them. Books and music were and still are my thing.
Mike was cool like that. I am so sorry this happened.
