- The odds of two grown men wearing Teenage Age Mutant Ninja Turtles t-shirts to the same course, on the same day, are much higher than you would think.
- You know you're in trouble when the most interesting session on Day 2 is how to set your workstation up ergonomically.
- If you're anything like me, when someone hands you a 1:1 lifelike model of a human spine and pelvis the urge to stick the pelvis on your head and make like a Klingon will be almost overwhelming.
- Boredom cannot be staved off with glasses of water and individually wrapped mints, no matter how hard you try.
So, all flippancy aside it wasn't too bad. Day 1 was an overview of the huge organisation I work for, and it was actually quite interesting in parts. The best thing is the really serious dedication they have to looking after the needs of the marginalised. The people who would otherwise fall through the cracks.
Day 2 was the killer, Occupational Health and Safety. There's just no way you can make that entertaining. Even with a model spine.
