Cutting.  The core of our work. As a bench tech I suspect you get to cut and embed every day.  Would you be surprise that when taken out of a lab for a long period of time, you might MISS cutting and embedding?

 I don’t get to cut every day like I used to – and yes – I really miss it!  I think it’s part of why retired techs take part time and PRN work.  We miss the art of making those beautiful sections from GI to full large-mold colon slides. 

Just sayin.
