0Jul 13 by ReadyToListenQuote from CountyRatEncore!!!! LOL that was awesomeYes, that is what I meant. I never got into the "Happy Birthday" thing, but I still perform the ritual with solemn reverence:
Crank out the paper towel half way (lest I sulley my soon-to-be pristine hands on the bacteria ranch that is the towel dispensor knob), wash each finger individually ("do NOT forget the spaces between the fingers, the nail beds, or the area under your wedding ring!" I hear resounding sternly from the distant past), rinse from the wrist down (fingers pointet down, of course!), leave my dainty paws dangling over the sink (no shaking them and splattering water all about), tear off the afore mentioned, partially deployed paper towel, dry hands, and then, and ONLY then, turn off the water using the paper towel as a barrier against the festering sesspool of contageon that lurks upon the faucet handles.
Whew, I am exhausted! Maybe some other time I will enthrall you all with description of how I exit the lavatory without (heaven forbid!) touching the Door Knob of DEATH, but right now I need to lie down for a while and regain my strength. You guys just continue without me.
1Jul 13 by jojo489, LPNNot only do I sign LPN after everything, but my signature itself has become a scribbled mess. (Renewed my drivers license for the first time since before nursing school- even the lady at the DMV commented about how much my signature changed!)
Frisking myself for a pen when I'm not wearing scrubs...also, going to put something in a pocket that's not there.
When my boyfriend aggravates me and I try to roll him off the bed, I don't just push him...I grab him by the shoulder and hip and he rolls like a perfectly round log.
Using medical abbreviations in notes I leave for people that don't understand said abbreviations.
Constantly assessing EVERYONE.
Lists. All day, every day. With check off boxes to boot!
