Pathetic Nursing Habbit.

  1. I HAVE BECOME ONE OF YOU.

    I was watching "Taking Lives" with my wife this weekend. It had a naked sex scene with Angelina Jolie, and I'm sitting here staring at the big veins popping out of her arms (you got start a 14g on that woman). Now I think that she is pretty hot, and you would think I would appreciate some frontal nudity, but those big veins just totally distracted me.

    Just one more step to being into assimilated into the collective pool of nursing.

    I look at complete strangers at Walmart, the beach, waiters, etc. looking at their good veins and thinking "I could hit that with a number 18 from ten feet away!!"

    I have often thought that and even murmured it outloud to my boyfriend...he just laughs and shakes his head.

    Hey, I even do that with babies! And sometimes the opposite....."I could never get an IV in that one". (Looking at a plump 25-30 pounder, a year or so old).

    My niece had diarrhea for a few days last week and I checked her for veins on the second day- just in case of an emergency. Her mother was not impressed.

    I am always doing that.... quite humerous. Huby is an RN and he does it too.

    You know that would be a decent pick up line if i ever get to go out for wing and a beer!

    "Pardon me, sir, but i could not help but notice what STUNNING veins you have! Can i call you sometime?"
