writing about the motherly qualities of the omentum got me thinking about the personalities of our other organs... here is what i have so far.
heart - cheerful, super dependable, everyone's friend. the heart is a jovial captain, often the last to abandon the sinking ship.
lungs - good ole boys, not complainers, take pride in a job well done but don't let themselves get overinflated (sorry, lame pun)
liver - a workhorse, great multi-tasker, can get a little touchy if overworked
gall bladder - liver's sidekick, more of a follower than a leader
pancreas -a loner, mostly keeps a low profile, occasionally throws a fit and then stews in its own juices, sometimes provoked by the gall bladder
brain - aloof, mysterious, doesn't care to share it's secrets, likes to think it's in charge of all the other organs, needs frequent rests
gut - not afraid to get down and dirty, prefers shiftwork
adrenals - frat boys of the organ world, like to kick up a little action with bursts of adrenaline
kidneys - serious overachievers (why else can we live with just one), think the heart exists to pump blood to the them, don't like to be teased for making urine
i don't know about you, but i see a little of myself in each of these organs.
