Caught Red Handed

Yesterday I was at the nurse's station listening to Christmas music. I'm not such a big fan of the classic religious carols, I prefer non traditional music. "Baby It's Cold Outside" by Dean Martin, "All I Want For Christmas is You" by Mariah Carey, etc.

So there I am rocking out to Eartha Kitt's "Santa Baby", singing along and shaking my booty. I was at the medication cart getting some morphine for a patient, and had my back to the main hallway. I THOUGHT no one was there.

Oh how wrong I was.

I was in the middle of sashaying my ass down the med cart like it was a stripper pole when I heard a cough. I froze. I slowly turned around (still crouched halfway down the cart) with the morphine syringe in one hand and the plastic tube I just popped it out of in the other.

There stood the Chief of Staff for the ER and the CEO of the hospital.

"Having fun?" they asked

"Yes," I whispered.

"Keep it up Julie. It's nice to see someone having fun at work."

I heard their laughter as they exited through the double doors. Oh, the predicaments I get myself into.

It is important to enjoy life to its fullest. Doing so when you think no one is looking is most awesome, even if someone really is looking.
