    I was leaving a message for a Dr. about one of his patients and I started the name off with Z as in Xylophone. Needless to say, I was very glad that the answering service that was doing the transcribing called me back to clarify.

    Quote from Do-over
    Strangely, I've had that old Men At Work song stuck in my head lately...

    Everytime I see Vegemite (the do actually sell it at Meijers), I am really intrigued (have been since the 80s probably when that song came out). I am SO curious about how it tastes...

    I mean, I love peanut butter or nutella on my toast. Can something called Vegemite really compare?
    I found it here in Albuquerque under the name Marmite.

    Ever encountered a doc's order such as... "uTox... STAT..."? I asked the MD... "Hey doc... you're aware that the pt is ANURIC, right?"...

    I just wanted to put out there "Thanks AN for the Calvin Klein male underwear ad." After a night of looking at old man/woman saggy butts, it was a welcomed sight.

    We had a float nurse that brought her lunch to work in a Abercrombie bag. It was neck to (very low) waistline. Brightened our night!
