- Jan 8, '12 by Sehille4774The other night my sister was reading riddles to me and we were trying to guess the answers.
Sister: "A man dies of thirst but he had plenty of water..how did this happen?"
Me: Screamed excitedly from downstairs: "He has diabetes insipidus! Give him some DDAPV!"
Sister: (with exasperation): It's not that kind of question! The answer is he was shipwrecked in the middle of the ocean on a raft"
Me: Awww .....

- Jan 9, '12 by rnsrgr8tI work in urology and we are always asking parents to describe hematuria in relationship to beverages.... pink lemonade, cranberry juice, tomato juice etc. I did have one parent compare it to different types of wine (blush, merlot etc ). Funny how I can still drink them and not think anything about it!
