  1. How about when your friend sends you a picture of a pimple on her butt and you are on vacation at the other end of the country??

  2. A recent non-text “incident” related to #11: Traded in my truck on a spur of the moment thing so did not have it cleaned out yet. While the sales person was helping me with the toolbox along with the usual tools, jumper cables, crow bar I unloaded an entrenching tool, zip ties, black duct tape, and an unused mortuary bag (great ground cloth for whatever & without the labels which go with the deceased they are thrown away so got one for my truck)…..Never thought about how that would look. All good – love the new truck!

  3. I love the rash! Once you be come a nurse any time a person says “hey you are a nurse right? Can I show you something?” I cringe at what body part and what malady I may see next!
