Ewwww, but they fall off so easy, and then I'm sitting there half lit up thinking "Its all good, got the voiding thang under control" and then..................my sage colored couch is not sage color anymore.

Duct Tape.....:idea::uhoh3::uhoh3::uhoh3::uhoh3:? :lol2:

Everyone I ever met that says "wicked good" was from New England. First I thought it was just a Mass thing but I've heard people from Vermont, Maine & New Hampshire using it too. I don't make the attempt to say with this New York accent even though I like the phrase it only sounds cool when they say it :lol2: I'm much better at words that start with "F" :yeah:

I've come to the realization that.........................my fellow BoSox fans are the one's who speak this way.

It can be like a code, for when we are at NYY park (pahk) or something.

And if the Sox beat the Yanks, it's Wicked Good.

I know where you're from!!!! Wicked good...:lol2:. I say forgo the foley and get a condom cath.....a lot less tugging when you forget and walk away from the couch!

well I'm not "FROM" the wicked good locale, but it's fun to say... err.. write.

Some things rub off on you, even if you don't like it... like a cat walking by you, rubbing their fur all over you... you get those hairs all over you. They just stick and when you try to pull them off and let them fly into the wind, the wind brings it right back. Wicked.

Don't you just hammer them real good with a book or something? Does it hurt when its successful? I mean, not "does it hurt" at first, I mean, is it like...............it hurts for a long time after? I've almost done that to someone, but in the end I was like "Eh, her threshold for pain is low, if it hurts she'll think I damaged her or something."

I should take a poll with the orig. posters of this thread, let them vote:

I wasn't one of the original posters on the thread, so I can't vote. Darn. (imagine the newscaster frowny face to indicate concern). I've never seen the book cure but I have seen the red hot paperclip burned through a thumbnail to realease trapped blood, and it was just boss, and wicked fun to watch all that old blood oozing out of the thumbnail.

we're not? Not that I even care or would wish to read a blog, but who cares...??

I didn't know it either, and I've seen other nurses link to outside blogs/videos before but when I put my helpful list of great blogs up I got a pretty healthy serving of whoop - *** leading to the eternal question, "is it ME??" The answer to that is always yes, it's me. Sigh ... worms! An order of worms right over here please!!

yank it.

The foley, I mean.

Why I keep coming back to allnurses :lol2:

U R allowed to vote nurse 56.

When I went and signed up for the gym today (taking steps to correct weight problem), the guy looked at me, and immediately went to the part of the application that said "List all past injuries or pertinent medical conditions:"

I just shrugged and said "None".

Him: "None?" [glancing at the half full bag]

Me: "None, thats optional, believe it or not."

Did you mean to say "Are you alright?" or.......................what? What am I right about? I don't hear that phrase, "You are right" often, I need to relive this moment.
