Pathetic Nursing Habbit.


    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.

    You're ok unless you are palpating total stranger's veins. I have done that while shaking hands without thinking!!!!! :imbar :chuckle

    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?"
