Love my calendar - page 2

My calendar is a gift given to me last Christmas. A young man sidled up to a woman at a bar and asked, "What do you do?" "I'm a nurse." she replied. " I wish I could be ill and let you nurse me," he... Read More

    Right-on Heather.
    Laughing is so good for the soul, and I love to.
    Here's another:
    YOU MIGHT BE A NURSE IF...

    You've beem working toward your BSN for longer than it takes most people to get a Ph.D.

    You have a recurring nightmare in which you're run over by a portable X-ray machine.

    I had recurring nightmares after our elevator at the nursing home where I worked broke, and we had to go to the kitchen located in the basement and hand deliver the residents' meals
    by hand. My first one was on the night of the same day that ocurred. In that dream, the floor to where I was delivering trays to was tipping upward. I woke up tired out!

    Heather,

    I have a Medical Bloopers calendar that has an anecdote for every day of the week. I also have a "Nurses" calendar with nursing related anecdotes that I bought at the Calendar store in the mall around X-mas time. I love them. Of course, I am a freak that if it has anything to do with Nursing or Nurses, I MUST HAVE IT!

    Hi,

    They aren't wall calendars but the kind that you sit on your desk and you rip the pages off of after the day's over? You know like The Far Side Calendar's--which by the way are no longer made. I bought the medical bloopers calendar at Waldenbooks.

    That's right Heather. Mine is the desktop version.
    I had a Far Side one two years ago. :chuckle

    This is a "PS"----I forgot to post my calendar message for today.

    CHART BLOOPERS

    ..The patient worked all his life as a grain elevator.

    ..The baby was delivered, cord was clamped and cut, and handed to the physician, who breathed normally and cried immediately.

    ..She is still under our car for physical therapy.:roll :chuckle

    My thread for today:
    After a long delay in the hospital's emergency room, a man was finally being transferred to an assigned room.
    "Since I had to wait so long," he quipped, "I deserve a beautiful nurse." Both women in the emergency room assured him this would indeed be the case, so when a young, attractive male nurse took over, the man remonstrated, "But you promised..."
    "Well," was the reply, "We think he's beautiful."

    It's me again. I would like to share with you.
    An eight-year-old boy wanted to be circumcised when he realized he looked different from his friends. The day after the procedure he returned to school. During class, he became uncomfortable and asked for permission to go to the nurse.
    When he arrived at her office, he hesitated and finally asked if he could call his mother. Sensing this was personal, the nurse stepped into the hall. Several minutes later the little boy came out of her office with his "affected area" sticking out of his trousers. "Where are you going?" she asked.
    "Back to class," said the boy.
    "But you can't go back like that!" said the nurse.
    "I have to," the boy replied. "My mother said that if I could stick it out until lunchtime, she would come and pick me up."
