    I love that "in Jesus' name. Amen". That would be appropriate for many occasions at work!

    Curses! As one of two Jewish nurses on my floor, I couldn't get away with that last one. Although seeing that everyone on my floor knows so little about Judaism that I, a completely secular, never-practicing person of simply Jewish heritage, have become the go-to girl for explanations of our Hasidic families' more esoteric practices, I could probably mutter whatever gibberish I liked upon waking and pass it off as Hebrew.

    I think it would be hilarious if you woke up from sleep and just started spouting:
    "Baruch Atah Adonai Eloheinu Melech ha'olam oseh ma'aseh vereshit."

    (I have a lot of Jewish friends... I'm the adopted Jew in my circle of friends haha).

    Translation:
    We praise You, Eternal God, Sovereign of the universe, Source of creation and its wonders.

    On the very few times in my life that my dad bothered to light Hanukkah candles, he'd get as far as "Baruch Atah Adonai Eloheinu Melech ha'olam" and start mumbling, eventually finishing with "or words to that effect." We weren't a very religious household...

    loved number 4
    Jews can say "In the name of the G-d of Abraham..Amen"
    another idea:
    Gotta stop licking my fingers to turn the pages of the medex when preparing the pts pills!

    Oh gosh---I had my head on the lounge table and when I heard the door open I automatically bent over and pretended to fix my shoe...then I made sure I was the first to say something--how's your patients? No I didnt fool anyone but I tried my best to get the Emmy for acting. What do you want? I think we should have the right to sleep on our break at 2 am.
