I have worked with the same woman for ten and a half years. It doesn’t seem that long but I guess it is. Good thing we track by calendar because I’d have no idea of time without one.

Its been one of those years [and yes, I realize it's only January :) ] We were talking about some stuff that is just hilarious to us, probably to no one else but we were laughing out loud at the craziness of it all.

Last night, I was sitting in Panera with Phyllis, and some guy sat down next to us, read the paper and carried on a conversation with himself, or someone I couldn’t see… I almost called you Sara for a pick up. And part of me felt kind of sorry for the guy, but then all of a sudden he started talking to the ‘commodont’ (I apparently am blind because I didn't see him) and about someone’s sex slave and pig snouts, and I just couldn’t help it, I bust out laughing. We had to leave. It was just so crazy…

So all I’m saying is that sometimes, you just gotta laugh, so you don’t cry.

I've had the pleasure of witnessing similar occurences, Margie, only not in public. Sara, the problem today wasn't just pants on the ground, but the lack of underwear on a male patient in a hospital gown, I didn't appreciate it when he stood up 4 feet away from me and bent over, sheesh!!

ha! we have a few versions at the moment; pants on the ground, underwear over pants (which probably prevents pants on the ground) pants-free. in the last case, we feel the individual is getting better because he's now wearing a sock over a certain appendage.
