Just A Funny Thought

  1. A few years ago I was charting what a student said to me and I wondered if anyone reading this in the future what would they think.

    Here's a couple of examples: (I am a detailed charter, so I try to put in what they tell me):

    C/O stomachache. States she ate a whole bag of Beaver Nuggets from Bucky's. (All my Texas peeps may know the fascination with Bucky's gas stations)

    Transferred student via mule to car in student parking lot.


    Anyone else have any funnies?

    Had a student come in complaining of a stomachache. Stated he had raviolis for breakfast but also said he felt hungry. No fever. Did the usual "have you gone to the bathroom?; been passing gas?" schpil....Ended up giving him a snack and he didn't like how it tasted (apparently raviolis were filet mignon ) so he opted to go back to class with some peppermints, a drink of water, and instructions to try to make it to lunch in the next 30 minutes. All of this was charted.

    What wasn't charted???

    His return visit almost 2 hours later.....he comes bopping into my office with a big grin on his face "Nurse Keeper!!! When I got to math class I farted sooooooo big!! And guess what?! My stomach felt better afterwards! WHO KNEW?!?!" I just laughed and laughed!!! I should have added that in as a reassessment I suppose but it definitely tickled me!!

    Sidenote: beaver nuggets are addicting!! But definitely shouldn't be eaten in large quantities!!

    Had to Google Beaver Nuggets... Not at all what the name initially conjured up in my farm girl brain

    Exactly!! If you ain't been to a Buckee's , you need to come to Texas and visit one.

    My girls are obsessed with Buc-ees - whenever we do Texas road trips and pass one it is a requirement to stop - selfie time with the Buc-ees Beaver statue in front & buy snacks....I do have to say that they have clean bathrooms

    BWHAHAH!

    The year of the ghost pepper challenge... that was fun. Mostly charting the comments of the parents. A dozen kids ingested a substance from a complete stranger and got sick. Only one parent thought it might be the school's fault.

    But if you're in the car driving to Houston, the coast, New Braunfels, Austin, or out of the state...the nuggets and a Dr. Pepper make the drive much better.

    Looks like Sugar Pops cereal! (Mom only allowed it one day a week... too much sugar )

    I am confused. Did you really transfer the student to the car on a mule? Or is that Texas slang for something?

    I need to know as well. If this turns out to be useful, I'll start bringing my horse to work!
