It's Raining Carrots
I came to work tonight and prior to taking report ate a baby carrot. I was drinking a cup of coffee during report and ran my tongue across my teeth just to make sure I had no baby carrots stuck in places to mar my beautiful smile. About 20 minutes later I went in to discharge a man and wife. I had the discharge papers on the counter in the room. While I was explaining to the wife about the instructions, a tiny piece of carrot flew out of my mouth and landed on the instruction sheet. I said Oh my word, where on earth did that come from(as I was looking up towards the ceiling) The patient and his wife predictably looked up to the ceiling as well. She said (this is a quote)I don't know, I don't see any carrots up there. It pays to know your patients. As they left they kept looking up..I am guessing so that they could dodge any flying carrot pieces.
