I want to be over 80 or under 3 or moderately looneybins. I can hear it now....you are looneybins. Whatever! The reason you may ask.....?????
If you are under 3 or over 80 you can say what you want and it's OK or funny. You say say rude stuff or or be blunt and it's OK. Until a week ago that was the criteria for being able to say blunt rude things. THEN I had a patient in the ER last week. She created the new category.
I'm starting an IV on her and she looks at me and says...."hmmm, your hair....I bet it's really cute when it's not in a ponytail".....I started laughing and couldn't stop. Yes, I know, I'm now 50, they aren't supposed to wear ponytails. But at 0-dark-thirty in the morning, I don't care.
I was telling some co-workers that this patient was living my dream. They asked what I meant by that. I told them that this patient could say whatever she wanted and it was acceptable and even funny. She could be blunt, rude or even mean and it was OK. One of the other nurses said, "you mean you aren't already living that dream?" Haha! Nope I'm not, I have a filter in place that keeps me from blurting out the first thing that pops into my head. No, really I do.......I'm not kiddin'!
Anyway, that was my fun story and has kept me laughing for a week now. I have lots to look forward to...being over 80 (I swear I'm gonna be a blast in the nursing home) or being looneybins.
Until then.....I want to be this:
I bet cats never have ulcers, they have no stress, especially the freeloaders that own this house (we rent from them).
Seriously, these guys want for nothing, we are well trained humans that are at their beck and call!
I mean how would it be to just go look at a human and have them instinctively know what is wanted....drink, food, outside.
Ya, so until I'm 80 or looney I'm going to practice being a feline! Meow!
