My little Bruce wanted to go to the nurse, and when I told him that he really didn’t LOOK sick, he was adamant. So, against my better judgment, I took him.
Nurse: “So Bruce, what hurts?”
“Every time I blow my nose my ear hurts.”
“Well, how long has this been going on?” the nurse asked.
“Um, let’s see, about 52 weeks. Since 2007 at least.”
And with that, I gently took his hand, smiled at the nurse and marched him back to class.
After deciding that I HAD to do a piece on school nurses, here are some chuckles sent to me by my friends...
“My ear hurts when I burp.”
“My lips are tired.”
“I’m leaking plasma.”
“I have a hernia in my knee.”
“I think my sister has the weasels.”
“My right eye is blinking.”
“Somebody Fwode up and it made me sick.”
“I had a crustacean on my eye.”
“I had to see the eye optimist.”
“My sister has mice in her hair.”
Then, my little John had gone to the nurse complaining of being "gassy".
The nurse asked him when his last bowel movement was. He said "Umm, when I was about 3.”
I can't wait to get back to work......
