Quote of the Night

From the little old man that we were helping get dressed to go back to the nursing home, after we pulled his underwear up a little too far:

"Hey, take it easy! You just wrapped my balls around my tonsils!"

Sorry, dude. My balls are purely figurative, but I wouldn't want them wrapped around my tonsils, either.

OK, first of all-I just laughed so hard I now have the hiccups.

Second of all, that reaches new heights of grossness, and if I didn't work in the ER I would never believe that.

And last but not least, 16 squared is now a part of my ER vocabulary.

Thanks for the excellent post!

Gotta love the oldies that speak their mind.

From a little old lady who's pants I pulled a little too high.. "Oops hold on there dear.. you just tucked my hanging baskets into my slacks."

She made my day.
