My first day back since I don't like to say, and
I had a hospice case in a homeless shelter...
The smell of filth and poverty... the sights and sounds....
All around was insanity, TB, HIV, and VRSA -
which makes MRSA look "little" by comparison.
Bugs, heat, compassion...
Then the toilet overflowed into the room.
All over the place...actually everywhere!
I know I have taken a major wrong turn somewhere back.
I know exactly where, too.
But I feel I can't fix it.
No lunch, besides.
A group of patients met me at my truck, and were talking amongst themselves.
They needed me to answer a question. Super urgent debate!
Since I am a Nurse. How they knew this, I don't know;
I'm wearing street clothes.
They ask "Can you have flesh AND skin?"
I didn't want a riot, so I put it back to the "lead" guy....
"I dunno.....what do YOU think?"
('Cus his answer is what I'm going to say, no matter what!)
He says "Uh... um.... well.... yeah!"
"Yay - Then I say yeah!
Of COUSE you can have flesh AND skin!"
The group went off, almost dancing, singing about flesh and skin and flesh.
A pound of flesh.
Mc D on the way home - no bun...angus day
And yes! You can have flesh AND skin, for sure; I know this!
Don't we all know this one!
