Head Lice - It's True - page 11

Tuesday morning I was brought a bug in a zip-lock bag. The bug had been just removed from a head. It was a, robust, adult head louse - judging by it's size. It appeared to be very agitated as it was... Read More

    Nurses with a sense of humor...whoda thunk it?? [emoji41]
    Seriously, I don't think we could get through one, not ONE, day...without a sense of humor. I mean really. Where would the fun of getting to come to work be without it. Ohhh, wait. I think we will have a better sense of humor when good ole Christmas Break rolls around in a few days.

    Speaking of lice,
    in college (the first time,1968) the guys were always freaked out about the draft. One guy was having to go before The Draft Board the following Monday, so on Saturday he decided to start taking hits of acid (LSD) He stayed up tripping until it was time to go for his appt. During the physical they discovered he had the crabs. That wasn't the reason he was rejected by the Draft Board, though. It was more that his brain processes were....um....compromised.
    But anyway, when he went back to his apt. he took a clean babyfood jar (art major), placed some of his pubic hairs in it, and several of the crabs (I seem to remember at least 3). He put the lid on the jar and showed one and all the "natural habitat" he'd made for them within the jar, which he kept in his parka pocket "because they're used to being in a warm place."

    I always wondered whatever happened to that guy...
    This is brilliant

    I really think we should change your name on here to OldWiseOne.
    My wife calls me wise all the time but the wise is always followed by the description of the south end of a north bound mule.

    oh, great - Now he's been given ideas... i'm scared

    on the other hand - Olddude could make a tidy little sum raising blackmarket for those kids that were infecting people for a sum ( Enterprising students leave nurses scratching their heads…) THEN could make a mint by opening up a Licelifters franchise - those people make BANK!! All with the help of his odd little, ahem, hobby.

    Way! I don't think I deserve it; I'm just trying to be informative.

    I just got a text...on break...from a mom in the neighborhood...asking about LICE!

    Even on break, there's no escaping the hysteria.
