    I was expecting to see "hamster lodged in bottom" but apparently that only happened to Charlie Sheene.

    What would you do if you weren't afraid?

    I drew the line between hope and despair, and the line will hold.

    Surprised 'COUGH' isn't on there.

    Yes, I am not kidding...'cough.'

    I would be a multi millionairess by now if I had a pound for every 'cough' I triaged.

    (ok, maybe not a multi millionairess but close, lol)

    We once removed a very large jar of Pond's Cold Cream...I had to bag it up and return it to the patient because "it is their property" To this day I do not know how I did it and kept a straight face!!!!
