A Few Interesting Facts about Dr Nally:
- He’s very happily married.
- He is the proud father of two very special children.
- He hates golf. (He threw his clubs over the Tapatio Cliffs about 10 years ago and never went back to get them.)
- When he was four years old, he fell off the second story balcony of his family’s apartment. When questioned by his mother as to what he was doing, he told her “the wind blew me off.” Since then he has had a love of flying and, someday, will finish his flying lessons. Until then, he ride horses, . . . it’s about as close to flying as you can get without leaving the ground.
- “The intricacies of human body prove visible witness to me that there is a God. After practicing medicine for a number of years, I am convinced that He has a sense of humor.”
- “I can handle any bodily fluid you throw at me . . . blood, urine, dirty diapers, entrails, tendons, severed wounds . . . except for vomit. I begin to wretch. I have to leave the room.” Isn’t that why we have nurses? 🙂
- He loves movies.
- He never missed an episode of Buck Rogers in the 21st century.
- He loves all types of music.
- He wanted to learn to play the drums. However, his father made a deal with him: If he could master the violin, he would buy him a drum set. Have you seen his drum set? (Neither have we.)
- He used to wear bell bottoms and parachute pants (He would alternate them every other day). His wife won’t let him wear them any more.
- On the night he proposed marriage to his wife, he returned to her parent’s home to tell them the news. However, they arrived in separate cars. She arrived at her parent’s home a few minutes before he arrived. Her father, a police officer at the time, met him at the door, invited him in and finished cleaning and loading his gun before he asked Dr. Nally what he was so excited about.
- He loves Disneyland more than his children love Disneyland.
- He was known in medical school as the “deer slayer.” He unintentionally hit a deer with his car every year he lived in Missouri.
- Double double “protein style” is his favorite burger.
- He only missed one episode of Battle Star Galactica; however, he saw the re-run twice.
- He served a two year religious mission in Japan for his church.
- He cannot stomach cheese sandwiches – He is reminded of vomit (see #6).
- He dislikes cake. . .never liked it. His last birthday had candles in a coconut cream pie. He love cinnamon rolls and apple fritters (but they don’t like him).
- He is a sushi connoisseur. If you invite him for sushi, he will have a very hard time saying “no”.
- He used to teach break dancing.
- He craves salt and fat. “Give me a thick medium rib-eye, a bag of pork rinds, and a large Diet Dr. Pepper and I will be a happy man.”
- He loves horseback riding. “There’s nothing better for a man’s soul than being outside on a horse.”
- He enjoys triathlons: swimming, cycling & running. “Pain is just weakness leaving your body” (as well as the remnants of #22). It is his goal to complete an Iron Man before he dies.
- According to his mother, he was actually born on January 23th at 12:23 am. However, when the nurse informed the doctor of the birth time she was going to write onto the birth certificate, he told her she was wrong and that he was born on the 22nd. The nurse disagreed with him, stating that she charted the time down when the baby was delivered. The doctor turned to her and said, “Look, I am the doctor, you are the nurse. I got out of bed and delivered this baby on the 22nd and until you complete medical school, that is what his birth certificate will say.” Then he turned to my mother and said, “Mrs. Nally, congratulations on your new son. He was born on the 22nd,” and he left the room. Dr. Nally tries to use this story every year, but his wife won’t let him celebrate two birthdays.
