    When you go around and say, "I lost my brain!!!!" (and you are referring to your brain sheet )

    Or say things like, "That guy in 2? Yeah, I blew him twice."
    OMG!!!! That is SOOOOO TRUE!!!!

    My computer is now wearing my afternoon tea.........!

    You know your a nurse when your mom calls to question you on how to treat your dads jock itch!

    You know you are a nurse when you can run down the hall at work yelling "save the poo" and NO ONE looks at you like you are crazy

    When you're at a crowded restaurant with your daughters, one of whom is about to have her first gynecological appt, and she makes the mistake of asking what it will be like. You pull a disposable speculum out of your purse and procede to explain everything in great detail with included hand gestures, while she tries to disappear under the table.
    -My mom did this. She was an RN studying to be a midwife and they sent them home with speculum's so that they could practice the motion. Now I'm getting ready to finish LPN school and I totally get it now. We keep grossing out the family at the dinner table swapping stories. LOL.

    Got a new one-

    Remember that I work on a unit, where isolation gowns are NOT kept near the patients room for safety reasons

    When you willing run into a room of a patient in Isolation for CDIFF without PPE to keep said patient from falling.

    When your dad asks what you did at work today, and when you tell him his reaction is a mixture of and (he shares my sense of humor, but not my exposure to gross medical things).

    When you want some entertainment during dinner, and pull up "[COLOR=#003366]what is your most gross, yucky, disgusting nursing horror story?[/COLOR]" to read while you eat.
