    I feel naked without my watch. I remember one day at work about nine am, I noticed that the battery had died on the watch that I was wearing. Now mind you this was a 12 hour shift for me. So I headed down to the gift shop and spent 30 bucks for a new watch
    because I CANNOT function without one!! I didn't NEED a new watch, I have about 20 of them but the thought of having to go the rest of my shift without a watch was just too much!! Plus I have to have my Littmann Master Classic scope and about 50 alcohol wipes and my scissors and about 10 pens--the hospital I work at supplies them for us. Plus a calculator and my "BRAINS"(you know that sheet of paper with all the vital patient information on it). God forbid if I ever lost that!! I have misplaced my clipboard a few times and have run around searching for it frantically. Luckily I was able to find it!! I NEVER leave my scope laying around! Docs walk off with them like nobody's business. The one time I left my scope lying at the nurses station- a doc used it on a patient and then left it in the patients room. I searched for a good hour before it turned up. So never again do I take my scope off from around my neck even if it does ruin the tubing!

    So I was reading all this and snickering to myself about how all of you are a little off.
    Because I don't have any one particular thing that must be on me (I sure am self assured), except of coourse there is this one
    thing that if I don't have it I am costantly
    looking for it. My wedding band. If I have taken it off I am feeling that place on my
    finger where it ought to be until I put it back on.

    Absolutely naked without my watch, some blush on my cheeks, earrings, my glasses,and my ID badge with my keys landyard around my neck. In my pockets, my pens, highlighter, hand sanitizer, a set of pt's wristbands, (for scanning purposes with our bar coding med system. If you think I'm running with that med cart for one PRN pain med, you're nutz!!!)and my bandage scissors.

    I've got to have make up on in order to feel ready for the world. At work I've got to have my gestational wheel on me and one pen.
