It is no secret I'm a nurse at an OB/GYN office. I love my job, and the sometimes strange comments I get from patients. Yesterday I had a very young mom to-be come in. I asked her if she had given us a urine sample yet (we always check protein and glucose). She asked me, "Why do you always need my pee? Do you guys check every single time if I'm pregnant?" My reply? "Honey, I know you're pregnant, that is why you're here" then I went on to explain to her what I check and why, and from the look on her face, I should've just said, "yes, I must check it to see if you're still pregnant".
|Maybe she needs this?|
Yesterday after work I had to drop a co-worker off at the body shop. I told her I would, but I first had to pick up my husbands CO2 tank. She agreed. When I got back in the car, I realized I had the Howard Stern station on. (for those not familiar with his station, it's on Sirius 100, and quite vulgar). I got back in the car and my 64 year old co-worker said, "what an interesting radio station, what channel is it?" I asked her if she like it, she replied, "it was really funny, even with all the bad words". I just laughed and thought today she'll go to work and talk about my taste in radio and how I love vulgar radio. I think he was talking about porn movies.
|Awesome-sauce, even if it is raunchy!!!|
Tuesday night while I was flossing, I pulled out part of my tooth with the string. It flung out so hard, hit the mirror, and then in the sink. I had to call the dentist on Wednesday morning for a emergency filling. That's never happened to me. When the dentist said, "how long had that one been in there?" I said, "well hell I don't know, do you see how many I have, if I had to keep up with them then I'd have an entire book called, Michele's Filling Dates, and BTW, that's why I pay you the big bucks dude!" He agreed, and then just laughed at me and told me no one has ever said that before. Well buddy, you've never had a cool patient like me....
|Why does the dentist ask questions?!?!|
My son told me this morning a boy at school has a mustache. This is how our convo went down:
J: Mom, a boy at school has a mustache.
J: When can I get one of those?
Me: In the next few years.
J: HOW long?
Me: I'm not the "puberty queen" I don't know when you'll grow facial hair.
J: I don't want facial hair, I just want a mustache. If I had facial hair, I'd be a bear!
Oh the joys of puberty....and teenagers....

In my health assessment class we are doing the neuro system. I've learned a lot, and in one section there is a test for men only. Since there are no men in our class, and I'm sure even if there was a male, he wouldn't let us do this test, the teacher said, "If you have a willing partner, do this test at home" Simple enough. When the hubby came home I said, "drop 'em, I gotta check something" Good thing he's a good sport!
It's the "Cremasteric Reflex", I will not post a pic, it would be like nurse porn....but feel welcome to google it....
This video has me cracking up! I could watch it 100 times and still crack up, there's a remix too, so if you like the original, you'll LOVE the remix!!! I actually had to watch it twice to figure out what the hell she was saying!
