New OzzyNurse saying G'day

  1. Hello all
    Just a quick intro Im a 35yr old male nurse working in rural and remote queensland. I have been working on a tropical island for ten months. The island has a population of about 4000 indiginous people. alcohol and the violence associated with it are one of the biggest problems. Lots of suturing. Great experience, and a friendly community. Now in the dusty central part of Queensland fighting to stop the ants getting into the house and picking bindi's out of my socks before i go and work.
    Regards OzzyRN

    Hi!! And welcome to the board - I wonder what our American colleagues are going to make of the phrase "picking bindi's out of my socks"

    Good morning Ozzy and Gwenith,

    Hmmm they can't mean what I think they mean. I do belly dancing and some people in class wear bindi's (third eye). But I doubt its that!

    Hello Gweneth and Cherish.
    Bindi's are certainly not a third eye they are however a right pain in the a#se. They are little mean round balls of prickles smaller than a pea and they love to stick into you socks shirts feet towls etc. Might i suggest that if you are ever in the situation of finding a bindi in your foot do not sit any where near grass to pull it out or you will find your britches full of prickles
