Good morning all! I don't have time to address you all personally, but I just had to stick my nose in this morning before I head to bed and lapse into a coma!
Jess, you are such a wonderful friend! You sound like the kind of nurse I would like to have in the hospital! Good for you for calling 911 - your friend sounds like she is in a serious health crisis - glucose over 300 and not eating anything?????
Just thought I'd let you all know - I got a 100% on both my lecture exam and lab practical in A&P - second test where I got 100 or better!
The funny thing about it - right before the test, I was talking with the guy sitting next to me. Nice guy, but a little self-assured and kind of sexist in a way. He says, "bet ya 50 cents I do better on this test than you do!" I simply said, "I never bet on test scores." Meanwhile I'm thinking, "does this guy think he's smarter just because he has a penis, or what?"
So, yesterday we get the tests back. Teacher says "lecture average was 75, lab average, 70. Highest score in the class, 100 - only one person in this class studied hard enough to get a 100 on this test." SO, she hands me my test, and without a smile on my face, I lean over to this guy and say, "how did you do? As good as you thought?" He gets this huge grin and says, I did well above average. I got an 82 on lecture, and a 79 on lab." I smile, and say, "well, good thing we didn't bet on the grades then." So of course, he asks to see my test - and I hand it over - "accidentally" handing my first test scores with it (I got every answer correct, including the bonus questions on both lecture and lab on the first exam). Let it suffice to say that I never saw someone turn that shade of red/purple except for the guy I had as a patient once whose BP was 240/125.
This cocky guy who foolishly tried to bet with me on his own sexist stereotype said not a word, simply handed my tests back and fished 50 cents out of his pocket. I bought a candy bar to celebrate!
Okay, now that I've shared my story that had me tickled pink, I have to go hit the sack before I fall into unconscousness right here at the desk. Later gaters!
