- Apr 7, '10 by FranemtnurseIf she had COPD she would have a reason to wheeze. Doesn't she know that no ventilation and hair spray don't mix? My sister used to put that stuff on my hair after she cut and styled it. I always had to go outside in order to get my breath. I eventually told her to only put that stuff on my hair outside if she wanted to put it on my hair.
- Jul 22, '10 by LaylaHendrix23my fiance and i were watching a show and the womans water broke. he then asks me how long she has to get to the hospital since she was taking a shower and getting things ready before she left. he then asks me "well shouldnt she hurry to the hospital because now the baby can't breathe...since all the fluid is gone the baby is going to die!" i was like lol....the baby is not going to die. it was just so funny cause he was so clueless!
he always asks silly questions and has no idea...it always cracks me up! but it always gives me an opportunity to practice teaching so its all good! lol!
- Jul 22, '10 by sharpeimomi called my elderly aunt tonight and while we were talking, she told me a friend's husband had had an m.i., but went right on to tell me she was thankful that, at least, he hadn't had a heart attack.
she's almost 90, and frightens easily, so i didn't correct her.
- Jul 23, '10 by GHGoonetteQuote from MoogieDid you know that, during WW2, soldiers coming home from North African service frequently came home with STDs. Their favorite excuse? They caught it from the camels...A friend who had been in the military once told me that when any of his fellow officers got an STD, he'd say it was dysentery to avoid embarrassment.
Unfortunately, one of the young officers DID get dysentery! (Did he say he had an STD, then?)
- Jul 23, '10 by CNL2BMe: I'm really tired today, honey (after working a 12 hour shift).
Husband (a salaried business guy) : Why? You don't have any responsibility. Somebody just finishes all your work after you leave.
We still fight about this one all the time.
- Jul 23, '10 by AngelfireRNMe: Lord, my back is killing me, I hope I don't have a kidney stone.
DH:Well, if you do, it's your own fault, you shouldn't have eaten all those blueberries.
Me:What does THAT have to do with a stone?
DH: All those little seeds probably got together in a stone and stopped your kidneys up.
Me: Sigh, and fight the laughter.
- Jul 24, '10 by canesdukegirlQuote from ElvishThis makes me laugh! We were doing an I&D one day and I hear the surgeon dictating on the phone. He said the alternate word for purulent drainage, but added an "ie" sound at the end. When he hung up, I asked him how he thinks the telephone auto-dictation would actually spell out that word. He immediately called and deleted the dictation!'Tis an auto filter indeed. For the same reason when you're describing purulent drainage using another also-can-be-misconstrued word, it gets filtered out too.
- Jul 24, '10 by canesdukegirlQuote from S.GettesOh wow! What a fishing story that was! How I WISH that there was something like glue to repair bones! I bet you had to hold your stomach you were laughing so hard! What a dork!My significant other has a brother who is nothing short of a severe exaggerater when it comes to his stories. There is always some kind of fantastical story coming out of my brother in laws mouth and they are always hard, if not impossible for me to believe, sadly though there are some who fall for all of his stories and hang off of his every word. The best one that had me laughing right mid story, causing everyone around me to look at me intrigued as to what i found so amusing, was when he told of how he had been water skiing and had broken his leg by way of a bad fall from the skiis, He said it was a bad break, penetrated the skin, snapped the bone clean in half. This aparrently occured when he was away on holiday for 2 weeks, so within this 2 weeks he managed to heal completely and come home to tell us all about it? Miraculous, and then when asked about the hospital and how they repaired such a significant break he simply told us that they glued the bone back together with the same glue they use to close wounds and then glued the wound closed and wrapped his leg in a tight bandage to keep the bone in place whilst the glue set. And yes, he does know what i do for a living....
