    Definitely when you have extensive conversations about BMs or other foul things over dinner and you don't even notice you are doing it. Especially if you have other nurses in your family....the non-medical family members are usually horrified.

    When you visit a friend in the hospital and have to resist the urge to empty their catheter.

    When your friend calls you for medical advice and you use terms such as "q" and "PRN" and they tell you to talk English.

    a little while ago, just as i took a sip of my iced tea, my husband read me something that me laugh so hard
    that i coughed, snorted, hacked, and wheezed until i was ok again. then... i blew my nose. again and again.
    many kleenex. when i was finally done, he asked me (so help me) "why did you blow your nose that many
    times?"

    "to get all that mucus up and out."
    "oohh... that word sounds sooo gross!"
    "ok, snot then..."
    he made a face and escaped to the kitchen.

    Your nightmares consist of checking 4 patients blood sugars and all the readings are 492! Then you check your own BS and it's also 492 even though you are not diabetic!
