Bring It On!

I made the mistake of opening my big fat mouth and being a smart ass to Dr. Q. Shocking, isn't it? I know. I found him slamming things down at the nurse's station, mumbling to himself about fighting with insurance companies and being disrespected by the patients.

"Hey Dr Q - you wanna take this outside?" I said with my fists held up in front of my chest.

He rips off his lab jacket, grabs my arm, and says "Hell yes! Let's go!"

"I NEED BACKUP!" I screamed as he pulled me out the double doors and into the grassy area beside the ambulance bay.

Fresh snow on the ground. 10 fresh inches of the white shit.

My comrades got there just as he lobbed the first snowball straight at my face. I ducked, and Lucy took it in the eyes.

The fight was on!

15 minutes later exhausted, dripping wet, and crying with laughter we all tromped back into the ER. The rest of our shift was a breeze, even though we had 2 trauma's, a code, and 10 or so drug seekers. It's easy to deal with stuff like that when you have a little stress relief snowball fight.

I just finished reading your entire blog... maybe I have too much time on my hands... either way I really enjoyed it. I am just starting pre-nursing courses next month so still a ways to go... I'm 36...too late to start??

Thanks for the laughs and smiles.
