Things I thought of to take my mind off of the fact that I was doing an ultra-sound on a patient's fungusy big toe:
1.) If I were at my old job right now I would be spending the entire day repeating the difference between inter- and intra-district transfers to parents who wouldn't get it even after I brought out the map. This new job is way more awesome.
2.) I know, I'll play geography games. List all the countries in Africa. Egypt, Libya, Tunisia...South Africa.
3.) Still 5 more minutes.
4.) Could this guy's gown be any shorter on him?
5.) I mean, there is short and then there is SHORT. And this is Mr. Shorty McShortster short.
6.) I wish I were better at small talk. I wonder if someone has a book I can borrow on it.
7.) I'll move on to state capitals. Alabama - Montgomery, Alaska - Juneau...Wyoming - Cheyenne.
8.) Knights of Columbus! Is this timer broken?
I guess when the doctor asked if I had a problem touching people she actually meant if I had a problem touching people's toes. Maybe I should have said yes.
