Worldly Wisdom

It's a bright and sunny Sunday afternoon.

People are walking in pairs outside, sitting on the stone steps and enjoying the breeze. Children are licking icecreams and dribbling it down their tee-shirts. Dogs are frolicking on the ends of leashes.

And I'm stuck indoors. Working. I've just seen 10 patients in 2 hours, which means that it is busy but not crazy.

On the bright side, I have learned much about common sense and worldly wisdom during my first two shifts in the Emegency Department...

1. Never try to adjust the blades of a lawn mower whilst it is still running. You will have to get your finger glued back together by a trembling ED doctor.

2. Never poke a German Shepherd in the eye with a pointy stick. You will get your eyebrow glued together by a trembling ED doctor.

3. Never try and break a china teacup with your bare feet. You will get pieces of precious heirloom removed from your heel by a trembling ED doctor holding a sharp pair of tweezers.

4. Never try and jump over a small brick wall whilst wearing stiletto heels. You will get your ankle wrapped up by a trembling ED doctor.

5. Never use a rubber band to maintain an erection. The trembling ED doctor will laugh at you. And you will be very, very, very embarrassed.

Gosh, I'm still recovering from laughing too hard! :)
